We are happy to present to you a new major release and therewith freshly revised windpowerlib!
The windpowerlib is a library that provides a set of functions and classes to calculate the power output of wind turbines and farms. It was founded to build a community concentrating on wind power models. Have a look at the what’s new for more information on what has changed and the examples for a quick start into the windpowerlib.
We are also happy to see that the number of users of the windpowerlib is steadily increasing. We therefore find it important to keep the API changes to a minimum from now on and announce changes well in advance. We also decided to support v0.1.3 for some more time in case you don’t want to upgrade your code to v0.2.0.
We added a new oemof repository aiming at collecting all kinds of examples on how to use oemof and its various libraries. You are welcome to help us fill the new repo by contributing your example via a pull request or by sending us an e-mail (see here for contact information).
With the new release of the feedinlib v0.0.11 all wind power calculations have been moved from the feedinlib to the new windpowerlib. We made this move in order to build a wind power modeller community similar to the pvlib. So check out and join the new windpowerlib!
The sun finally came out today and so did our April release with new features and bug fixes. Check out the What’s New for more information.
The upcoming month will be especially interesting for the oemof community as the 4th oemof Developer Meeting will take place in the beginning of May. Major organisational and structural issues will be discussed and you can look forward to a great new release. So stay tuned!
