Do you mean that the excel data is structured in PSSE RAW data format? I.e. bus data, followed by load data, followed by shunt data, etc.

PSSE raw data in an Excel file may be exported into PSSE in the following way:

1: Export data from excel to csv-file with proper modules, e.g. xlrd and csv.

2: Remove lines in the beginning of the csv-file so first line is the first bus data record. After last data group, add Q on a separate line.

3: Read the file into PSSE with API RDCH to update existing PSSE network data.

To read a complete network from excel use API READ instead and include the "Case Identification Data record" and the two case title lines in the beginning of the csv-file.

See API manual, Chapter 1.

You are using READ to read a RDCH-file. Your bus data rekord is also wrong. It is not in raw data format. Please read the manual!

The excelpy module provided with PSSE does not have the ability to import data from Excel, merely to export to Excel.

Personally, I use openpyxl for reading and writing to Excel. I suggest that you give openpyxl a go.
