The GitHub presence and the new structure of oemof was presented at the 4th openmod meeting at KTH in Stockholm along with 16 other short talks of the international community. Many common working fields have been detected and discussed which will hopefully be continued in the coming months.
The newest version of pyomo (4.3.11377) causes problems so we had to exclude it from the setup file. Now fresh installations will work out of the box again.
The sun finally came out today and so did our April release with new features and bug fixes. Check out the What’s New for more information.
The upcoming month will be especially interesting for the oemof community as the 4th oemof Developer Meeting will take place in the beginning of May. Major organisational and structural issues will be discussed and you can look forward to a great new release. So stay tuned!
On April 1st of 2016 version 0.0.5 aka the March release of oemof has been published. Among some bug fixes, documentation cleanups and new features, we are marching towards stabilizing oemof’s API and feature set. See the release notes for a (more or less complete) breakdown of what’s new in this release.
There will be a major refactoring in April which is planned to create the basis for a bigger version bump.
Indeed it is and here is our 2nd release in 2016. Some days over, but anyway. What’s new?
- Revision of the outputlib
- Added postheating device to transport energy between two buses with different temperature levels
- Fixed bugs
Futhermore, we have decided to undertake a major refactoring in April. It will affect the new majorish version to be released after the Developer Meeting in May. For more information on that, contact us on github.
We released a new version of oemof today. The new version includes some nice features such as the demandlib for calculation of demands, the outputlib for beautiful plots. Additionally the documentation was improved and bugs have been fixed! We implemented a fast-build way for important constraints of the solph-pyomo model. For large models this can be significant faster.
After the first release in November a lot of big or small fixes are done. The API for the results changed but over all the APIs will be more and more stable until summer.
Some inconveniences are fixed and the documentation is cleared up a bit. We hope that it is now easier to use the feedinlib. We still working on the models. The results at some places still differ a lot from reference calculations.
Please see the release news for more information.
At 3rd Open Energy Modelling Workshop design of the OpenEnergy Platform was discussed in a breakout group. This Platform that will be released in 2016 serves as hub for energy system modelers to improve visibility, communication and in general support development open source licensed energy system models.
Oemof and in particular its modular and community based approach contributed valuable input to the discussion about the OpenEnergy Platform.
