We just published the third release of the oemof.thermal repository.
It’s time to proudly introduce a new component – the absorption chiller. Within the module we provide functions to calculate, among others, the characteristic equation, the coefficient of performance and the cooling capacity. See the documentation for more information.
All modules have been updated to oemof.solph v0.4
See the What’s new section for further details about the third release.
We just published the second release of the oemof.thermal repository.
A brand-new feature are the facade classes that simplify instantiating the components. Facades for these three components are now ready to be used: SolarThermalCollector, ParabolicTroughCollector and StratifiedThermalStorage.
The documentation has been revised and extended. The repository now has function tests, and the facades are tested with constraints test.
See the What’s new section for further details of the second release.
There will be a tutorial about the oemof.thermal repository at the upcoming virtual oemof developer and user meeting.
We are happy to announce the first release of the oemof.thermal package (v0.0.1) to model thermal energy systems: https://github.com/oemof/oemof-thermal
The package includes the following four components: stratified thermal storage, compression heat pumps and chillers, solar thermal collectors and concentrating solar power.
Please find the documentation of the components and examples here: https://oemof-thermal.readthedocs.io/en/stable/
If you find bugs or have suggestions for improvement we would be happy if you write an issue here: https://github.com/oemof/oemof-thermal/issues
Last week the 8th oemof developer meeting took place in Flensburg. More and more people use the oemof framework for their projects and are ready to participate in the developing process.
The developer meeting is always a good place to meet the people behind the scenes, introduce own problems on energy system modelling and gradually learn about the structures of the developing process.

In the beginning of November the next oemof developer meeting takes place in Flensburg.
Our developer meetings take place every six months and aim at the further development of new features and functions within oemof. Moreover we will discuss the future community structure and the collaborative programming process.
Anyone who is interested is cordially invited to participate. Please find detailled information and the topics we collected up to now here: https://github.com/oemof/organisation/wiki/Meeting-November-2018
If you want to be part of it or have topics to add, please contact us via email@example.com or https://github.com/oemof/organisation/issues/31
From 2nd to 6th September 2018, the Beuth Hochschule für Technik Berlin supported a training course on sustainable energy concepts at the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) in Muscat, Oman. The course, jointly led by experts from the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the Research Council of Oman (TRC) and the Centre for Community Service & Continuing Education at SQU, applied oemof to model cooling concepts in Oman.

The user meeting takes place on May 8th, 2018 from 10 am. You can find the agenda and further information here. Optionally we can have a dinner in the evening and take the morning of the next day to continue our work in the working groups. But if you can come for only one day that’s totally fine. We look forward to welcoming you in Magdeburg!

You are using oemof? Then take the chance to improve and accelerate your work by exchanging with other users at the oemof meeting in Magdeburg from 7th to 9th of May. We invite you to have a look at our thread in the openmod forum we opened for that purpose and to participate in the discussion.
The upcoming oemof developer and user meeting is hosted by the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg from 7th to 9th of May, 2018. The meeting is focused on the organization of collaborative programming as well as more in-depth further development of oemof functionalities. The developer meeting takes place every sixth months and is the oemof community’s most important workshop. New members are very welcome to collaborate on the open modeling framework.
All those who wish to use oemof or wish to incorporate their ideas on the further development of the framework are invited to connect at the meeting, to introduce their applications, and to answer open questions. If you wish to attend please send an Email to email@example.com.
