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!
