oemof developer meeting in December 2020

A preliminary schedule has been drafted and is available on our GitHub Wiki page. You can still register via the Etherpad and, for example, line up to pitch your project to exchange ideas and get feedback from the community.

We look forward to seeing you!

Join the oemof User Meeting of Spring 2021 (online)

In less than three weeks, the next digital oemof meeting is scheduled. From May 5th to May 7th you can join tutorials, show and discuss your own models and share your experience with the oemof community.

To register, simply add your name and/or GitHub handle in the participants list in the respective etherpad. We invite you to add your own topics until May 2nd. A schedule will be drafted and continuously updated based on your feedback and suggestions. We will keep you informed on technical details (platform, meeting link, etc.) with the next post on and in the etherpad.

If you have any trouble or questions, you can reach out via our contact-form.

TESPy v0.4.0 – Gibb’s Gallery and more

A new major version of TESPy has been published. The releases Gibb’s Gallery and User’s Universe feature major improvements in the software.

A new major version of TESPy has been published. The releases Gibb’s Gallery and User’s Universe feature major improvements in the software, amongst others:

  • Automatic documentation of your TESPy model with LaTeX. Examples are available in the oemof_examples repository, e.g. this report.
  • Generic user defined equations enhancing the flexibility in modelling.
  • Generic exergy analysis tool.
  • Export of fluid property data in a format, that can directly be used for generation of states diagrams in fluprodia.

On top of that, the core of the TESPy components has been reworked to lower the access barriers for new developers.

The new version also comes with an new API, therefore minor changes in your model will be necessary. Read about all changes necessary in the release notes of Gibb’s Gallery and the release notes of User’s Universe. You will find all new features available in those notes, too.

TESPy v0.3.0 – Mayer’s Merit

The third major version of TESPy – Mayer’s Merit – has been released together with a paper in the Journal of Open Source Software, available at the Open Journals website. The new version carries many new features, improved calculation stability for fluid mixtures and back end changes. Continue reading “TESPy v0.3.0 – Mayer’s Merit”

TESPy v0.2.x – Clausius’ Circus and Fourier’s Fable

The second major version (Clausius’ Circus) of TESPy has been released in January 2020 and version 0.2.1 – Fourier’s Fable just three weeks after. The release contains many back end improvements to facilitate future development as well as some new features. Continue reading “TESPy v0.2.x – Clausius’ Circus and Fourier’s Fable”

TESPy version 0.1.0 published

With the first release of a minor version, TESPy takes an important step for future development: We have added software tests and a first benchmark case testing results of TESPy vs. results of a different commercial software. On top, the API-documentation has been revised and improved in many places. Examples for every component as well as all major modules and classes (network, network_reader, connection, bus) provide support for the users! Continue reading “TESPy version 0.1.0 published”

TESPy version 0.0.3 available

The third release of TESPy is available at PyPI:

TESPy (Thermal Engineering Systems in Python) is a new software in the oemof cosmos. It supplies a large toolbox for simulation of thermal processes, such as heat pumps, thermal power plants or heating networks. You can use TESPy for the design of your plants and predict the offdesign performance. This way TESPy can provide characteristics, for instance the backpressure-line of a chp or temperature dependent COP of a heat pump, for your energy system optimization in oemof.solph.

Version 0.0.3 provides a new component, improved convergence stability as well as some other new features!

See the What’s New section of the documentation for detailed information. Use github for bug reports.

Have fun working with TESPy!
