Plant_EnergySE is a set of models for analyzing wind plant energy production for both land-based and offshore wind plants.
Author: K. Dykes and G. Scott
This software is a beta version 0.1.0.
For detailed documentation see http://wisdem.github.io/Plant_EnergySE/
General: NumPy, SciPy, Swig, pyWin32, MatlPlotLib, Lxml, OpenMDAO
Wind Plant Framework: FUSED-Wind (Framework for Unified Systems Engineering and Design of Wind Plants)
Sub-Models: CommonSE, OpenWind
Supporting python packages: Pandas, Algopy, Zope.interface, Sphinx, Xlrd, PyOpt, py2exe, Pyzmq, Sphinxcontrib-bibtex, Sphinxcontrib-zopeext, Numpydoc, Ipython
Install PLant_EnergySE within an activated OpenMDAO environment:
$ plugin install
It is not recommended to install the software outside of OpenMDAO.
To check if installation was successful try to import the module from within an activated OpenMDAO environment:
$ python > import plant_energyse.basic_aep.basic_aep > import plant_energyse.nrel_csm_aep.nrel_csm_aep > import plant_energyse.openwind.enterprise.openWindExtCode > import plant_energyse.openwind.enterprise.openwind_assembly > import plant_energyse.openwind.academic.openWindAcComponent > import plant_energyse.openwind.academic.openwindAC_assembly
Note that you must have the enterprise or academic versions and corresponding licesnses for OpenWind in order to use those software packages. This software contains only the OpenMDAO wrapper for those models.
You may also run the unit tests which include functional and gradient tests. Analytic gradients are provided for variables only so warnings will appear for missing gradients on model input parameters; these can be ignored.
$ python src/test/test_Plant_EnergysSE.py
