Solph 0.4.4: Capable Custom Components

Earlier this month, we released solph 0.4.4. It focuses on two new “custom components” (This is how we call in-developments components that are not yet part of the stable API.) There are:

  • PiecewiseLinearTransformer. A transformer model with one input and one output and an arbitrary piecewise linear conversion function.
  • Enhanced SinkDSM (sink allowing for demand side management)
    • Renamed keyword argument method to approach
    • Renamed approaches interval to oemof and delay to DIW
    • Added modelling approach DLR (PhD thesis of Hans Christian Gils 2015)
    • Included load shedding
    • Introduced recovery_time in DIW approach
    • Introduced shift_time and other parameters for DLR approach
    • Included investments in DSM
    • Normalized keyword arguments demand, capapcity_up and capacity_down

Further, some smaller changes made it into the release:

  • Check number of Flow s in GenericStorage
  • Allow conversion factor of zero for GenericTransformer
  • Split code into submodules
  • Move CI-Tests from Travis to github
