Electrical Engineering Functions in Python
Python Libraries with functions and constants related to electrical engineering.
The functions and constants that make up these modules represent a library of material compiled with the intent of being used primarily for research, development, education, and exploration in the realm of electrical engineering.
Check out our full documentation: https://electricpy.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
Documentation has recently been updated to use ReadTheDocs
GitHub Pages are still active, and will continue to be for the forseeable future, but they're intended for developmental updates rather than primary documentation.
- Extensive set of common functions and formulas for electrical engineering and electronics.
- Support for LaTeX math generation (use this in conjunction with your Jupyter notebooks!)
- Generate focussed and simple plots, diagrams, and figures.
Samples Generated with ElectricPy
|Phasor Plot||Power Triangle||Induction Motor Circle|
Installing / Getting Started
- ElectricPy has a few basic installation options for use with
pip. For most common users, use the following command to install ElectricPy with
pip install electricpy[full]
- Check installation success in Python environment:
import electricpy electricpy._version_
- Start using the electrical engineering formulas
>>> import electricpy as ep >>> voltage = ep.phasor(67, 120) # 67 volts at angle 120 degrees >>> voltage (-33.499999999999986+58.02370205355739j) >>> ep.cprint(voltage) 67.0 ∠ 120.0°
Installing from Source
If you're looking to get the "latest and greatest" from electricpy, you'll want
to install directly from GitHub, you can do that one of two ways, the easiest of
which is to simply issue the following command for
pip install git+https://github.com/engineerjoe440/ElectricPy.git
Alternatively, you can do it the "old fashioned way" by cloning the repository and installing locally.
- Clone/Download Source Code from GitHub Repository
- Open Terminal and Navigate to Folder with
- Use Python to Install Module from
pip install .
For numerical analysis (install with
pip install electricpy[numerical]):
For fault analysis (install with
pip install electricpy[fault])
Get Involved / Contribute
If you're interested in contributing, we'd love to see your support in a number of ways!
- Write Tests - We're really lacking in this area. We've recently added simple GitHub actions to test installation, but that's about it. We hope that someday we can test all functions in this module for verification.
- Contribute New Electrical Engineering Functions - If you've got a new function related to electrical engineering that you'd like to see added, we'd love to throw it into this module. Our goal is that this module can become the comprehensive electrical engineering toolkit in Python. Drop us a note, or create a pull request!
- Report Issues - We don't want issues to go unnoticed. Please help us track bugs in our issues and resolve them!
- Get the Word Out - This project is still in its infancy, so please share it with your friends and colleagues. We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to take advantage of this project.
