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
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.
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 ⛄
Some bug fixes, a revised storage component, more tests and some documentation improvements are worth a summer release 🌞🌞🌞
