A multi-sectoral model of Germany with flexible multi regions.
The deflex library provides a simple heat and power model of Germany. Some basic scenarios with all data are included.
On a Linux Debian system you can use the following command to solve all requirements beforehand.
sudo apt-get install python3-dev proj-bin libproj-dev libgeos-dev python3-tk libspatialindex-dev virtualenv
If you have a working Python 3 environment, use pypi to install the latest deflex version:
pip install deflex
The deflex library is designed for Python 3 and tested on Python >= 3.6. We highly recommend to use virtual environments. Please see the installation page of the oemof documentation for complete instructions on how to install python and a virtual environment on your operating system.
Create a basic scenario as xls-file or collection of csv-files using the following lines.
The first run of the following lines may take some hours, because all needed data will be downloaded, processed and stored locally. On the next run the stored files will be used.
Use the logger to see the state of the script.
import logging from deflex import basic_scenario logging.getLogger() logger.setLevel(logging.INFO) basic_scenario.create_basic_scenario(2014, 'de21')
Use the following lines to optimise an existing basic scenario:
import logging from deflex import main logging.getLogger() logger.setLevel(logging.INFO) main.main(2014, 'de21')
To optimise a user scenario one has to pass the path to the scenario file(s).
import logging from deflex import main logging.getLogger() logger.setLevel(logging.INFO) main.model_scenario(xls_file='/my/path/to/scenario.xls', name='my_scenario', rmap='deXX', year=2025)
It is faster to use csv-files!
import logging from deflex import main logging.getLogger() logger.setLevel(logging.INFO) main.model_scenario(csv_path='/my/path/to/my_csv_files', name='my_scenario', rmap='deXX', year=2025)
We are warmly welcoming all who want to contribute to the deflex library.
