We just published the first release of DHNx!
With DHNx, we introduce a package for district heating network optimization and simulation models.
The aim of DHNx is to develop a library for the planning and modelling of district heating network systems. The package has two main features: the optimization (routing and sizing) of district heating network systems, and the hydraulic and thermal simulation of a district heating network with given pipe diameters.
Examples can be found here here.
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”
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”
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
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
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 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)”
With the new minor release v0.2.3 it is possible to install oemof directly on a Python 3.7 environment.
As nothing else has changed you do not have to update your version if you have v0.2.2 installed.
Look out for the next major release (v0.3.0) scheduled for January 2019 ⛄
