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 ⛄
Last week the 8th oemof developer meeting took place in Flensburg. More and more people use the oemof framework for their projects and are ready to participate in the developing process.
The developer meeting is always a good place to meet the people behind the scenes, introduce own problems on energy system modelling and gradually learn about the structures of the developing process.
The article “A qualitative evaluation approach for energy system modelling frameworks” is published in Energy, Sustainability and Society.
The authors identified ‘complexity’, ‘scientific standards’, ‘utilisation’, ‘interdisciplinary modelling’ and ‘uncertainty’ as the current main challenges of energy system modelling. By means of a case study, oemof’s contribution to tackle these challenges is analysed.
In the beginning of November the next oemof developer meeting takes place in Flensburg.
Our developer meetings take place every six months and aim at the further development of new features and functions within oemof. Moreover we will discuss the future community structure and the collaborative programming process.
Anyone who is interested is cordially invited to participate. Please find detailled information and the topics we collected up to now here: https://github.com/oemof/organisation/wiki/Meeting-November-2018
From 2nd to 6th September 2018, the Beuth Hochschule für Technik Berlin supported a training course on sustainable energy concepts at the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) in Muscat, Oman. The course, jointly led by experts from the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the Research Council of Oman (TRC) and the Centre for Community Service & Continuing Education at SQU, applied oemof to model cooling concepts in Oman.
