Attributes#

pudl.output.ferc1.logger[source]#
pudl.output.ferc1.plants_utils_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Build a dataframe of useful FERC Plant & Utility information.

Parameters:

pudl_engine (sqlalchemy.engine.Engine) – Engine for connecting to the PUDL database.

Returns:

A DataFrame containing useful FERC Form 1 Plant and Utility information.

Return type:

pandas.DataFrame

pudl.output.ferc1.plants_steam_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Select and joins some useful fields from the FERC Form 1 steam table.

Select the FERC Form 1 steam plant table entries, add in the reporting utility’s name, and the PUDL ID for the plant and utility for readability and integration with other tables that have PUDL IDs.

Also calculates capacity_factor (based on net_generation_mwh & capacity_mw)

Parameters:

pudl_engine (sqlalchemy.engine.Engine) – Engine for connecting to the PUDL database.

Returns:

A DataFrame containing useful fields from the FERC Form 1 steam table.

Return type:

pandas.DataFrame

pudl.output.ferc1.fuel_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Pull a useful dataframe related to FERC Form 1 fuel information.

This function pulls the FERC Form 1 fuel data, and joins in the name of the reporting utility, as well as the PUDL IDs for that utility and the plant, allowing integration with other PUDL tables.

Useful derived values include:

  • fuel_consumed_mmbtu (total fuel heat content consumed)

  • fuel_consumed_total_cost (total cost of that fuel)

Parameters:

pudl_engine (sqlalchemy.engine.Engine) – Engine for connecting to the PUDL database.

Returns:

A DataFrame containing useful FERC Form 1 fuel information.

Return type:

pandas.DataFrame

pudl.output.ferc1.fuel_by_plant_ferc1(pudl_engine, thresh=0.5)[source]#

Summarize FERC fuel data by plant for output.

This is mostly a wrapper around pudl.transform.ferc1.fuel_by_plant_ferc1() which calculates some summary values on a per-plant basis (as indicated by utility_id_ferc1 and plant_name_ferc1) related to fuel consumption.

Parameters:
  • pudl_engine (sqlalchemy.engine.Engine) – Engine for connecting to the PUDL database.

  • thresh (float) – Minimum fraction of fuel (cost and mmbtu) required in order for a plant to be assigned a primary fuel. Must be between 0.5 and 1.0. default value is 0.5.

Returns:

A DataFrame with fuel use summarized by plant.

Return type:

pandas.DataFrame

pudl.output.ferc1.plants_small_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Pull a useful dataframe related to the FERC Form 1 small plants.

pudl.output.ferc1.plants_hydro_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Pull a useful dataframe related to the FERC Form 1 hydro plants.

pudl.output.ferc1.plants_pumped_storage_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Pull a dataframe of FERC Form 1 Pumped Storage plant data.

pudl.output.ferc1.purchased_power_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Pull a useful dataframe of FERC Form 1 Purchased Power data.

pudl.output.ferc1.plant_in_service_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Pull a dataframe of FERC Form 1 Electric Plant in Service data.

pudl.output.ferc1.plants_all_ferc1(pudl_engine)[source]#

Combine the steam, small generators, hydro, and pumped storage tables.

While this table may have many purposes, the main one is to prepare it for integration with the EIA Master Unit List (MUL). All subtables included in this output table must have pudl ids. Table prepping involves ensuring that the individual tables can merge correctly (like columns have the same name) both with each other and the EIA MUL.
