v0.3.1 – Buggy Battery

With v0.3, the API of the GenericStorage has changed. Due to the open structure of solph, the old parameter names were still accepted, but practically ignored. Therefore users may not notice that a default value is used instead of the value they wanted. Especially after an update from v0.2.x to v0.3.0, code often still runs but produces different results. With the new v0.3.1 release, an error is raised when legacy parameter names are used. We work on a structure to avoid such problems in the future. To update, just:

pip install oemof --upgrade

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”

The first single zero release of windpowerlib (v0.1.0)

The windpowerlib has taken a major step and released v0.1.0. The code has been cleaned up, new features were added and a comprehensive testing environment guarantees more stability.

The new release equips the windpowerlib with a large amount of new functionalities. A major change is the modelling of wind farms where wake Continue reading “The first single zero release of windpowerlib (v0.1.0)”

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!
