The quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is created under extreme conditions, such as the ones prevailing in heavy ion collisions. The characterization of the QGP can be done using high-pT probes such as the partons that are created through hard scatterings in the fireball. These fast-moving partons lose energy and momentum along their traveled path through the medium. The parton deposition of energy-momentum creates an in-medium disturbance that can be described using approximations within relativistic hydrodynamics in a defined regime of the QGP evolution. Based on earlier research in this field, we study the use of extended sources that depend on the location of the parton-jet in the initial stages of the QGP evolution. We explore this approach as a way to complement the current numerical landscape of hydrodynamical QGP studies and to eventually generate initial conditions that can be used as input of hydrodynamical numerical simulations.
