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.
Please register by writing your name in the wiki, or by adding a short comment in the issue. If you are only interested in a few session, please also indicate that in your comment, or write your name directly to the sessions.
With the fourth release of oemof-thermal we have validated the compression heat pump, the compression chiller and the stratified thermal storage using data provided by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the energy supplier Naturstrom AG. The results are provided in the documentation.
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.
After oemof v0.3.2, we decided to make oemof’s structure more clear: Both, the framework (including e.g. TESPy) and the Package for energy system optimisation (using solph) were called the same – oemof. With the release of v0.4.0, there are now split packages for oemof.solph, oemof.network, and oemof.tools.
Less than a week until the next user/dev meeting will begin. We set up a schedule for the meeting, which might be updated in the next days. We still have some free slots available to organize additional sessions.
For registering, please sign up here (scroll to the bottom). We still have some spots available. If you don’t have sufficient access rights, drop us a line here.
All registered people get access to the web conference. We’ll get in touch with you by mail. The meeting will be streamed including an option for Q&A via chat. The stream will be announced on the wiki page.
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.
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.
