As part of the open_plan research project, we invite you to the third stakeholder workshop and look forward to presenting version 1.0 of the open_plan tool. If you are interested you can register here. The workshop will take place on 20.10.2021 from 10–13:00 online. Workshop language is German.
In the open_plan project we are going to develop a user interface to build an energy system with oemof. During the development process, we focused on user-friendliness, which is a key requirement of our partners. In this context, we also would like to get feedback from the oemof community on our results and release the tool for first use.
We would like to point out that the open_plan tool is still under development. Nevertheless, we would like to release the tool with its current development status for initial use so that we can incorporate your feedback into the further development of the tool at an early stage. With this approach, we ensure that the requirements of our partners for the open_plan tool are met in the best possible way.
Two days only until the third digital oemof meeting: Starting on Wednesday, 5th of May, users and developers are invited to participate and share their experience with the oemof community. The meeting will be held online via BigBlueButton.
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.
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 oemof.org and in the etherpad.
If you have any trouble or questions, you can reach out via our contact-form.
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.
We are about to move oemof.org to a new web space. To allow for a smooth transition, the new page (this one) is already on-line. So, hopefully, the posts announcing the transitions here and there (at the old site) will be the mayor signs of the relocations. But there is more:
Improved control: By doing more on our own, we have more flexibility on what we do. Several times already, we came to the point that we wanted to implement something for the page but were not able to because of our web page plan. This will be different from now on.
Improved data protection: The first thing we use our newly gained power for, is sniping of the trail of your data to third parties. Also, hosting has moved from the US to Europe.
More to come: This is not planned to be a relaunch but a smooth transition. Honestly, I would not even write this if I did not have to test the post notification mailer.
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.
The next oemof developer meeting will be held from Wednesday the 2nd to Friday the 4th of December 2020. It will be an online event full of virtual workshops and discussions about technical and organisational aspects of oemof. One topic will be the current status of the “oemof foundation” (working title), which is planned be incorporated at the next in-person meeting.
Anyone who is interested is cordially invited to participate and to contribute topics. All topics including additional information will be collected at the oemof organisation wiki page for the 2020 December Meeting. If you want to register, please contact us in the according ticket at GitHub. You can also suggest additional topics at the same place, we will continue shaping the agenda based on your input at least until the 23rd of November.
