Python support for the Transactive Energy Simulation Platform

Project description

Transactive Energy Simulation Platform (TESP) simulates the electric power distribution grid with transactive control of loads and resources. Current features include:

The goal of TESP is that researchers can focus their work on the last item, to push advances in the field.


tesp_support can be installed using pip:

$ pip install tesp_support

However, in order to be useful, tesp_support needs custom versions of GridLAB-D and EnergyPlus. It also requires Python 3.6 or later, with NumPy, SciPy, NetworkX, Matplotlib and PYPOWER. There are cross-platform installers of the complete TESP for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X on GitHub. A Docker version is also available for users.

Development Work Flow for tesp_support

  • From this directory, ‘pip install -e .’ points Python to this cloned repository for any calls to tesp_support functions
  • See the for a roadmap of existing Python source files, and some documentation. Any changes or additions to the code need to be made in this directory.
  • Run tests from any other directory on this computer
  • When ready, edit the tesp_support version number and dependencies in
  • To deploy, ‘python sdist upload’
  • Any user gets the changes with ‘pip install tesp_support –upgrade’
  • Use ‘pip show tesp_support’ to verify the version and location on your computer

Using TESP

This is a developer’s platform for electric power grid research. See for user instructions, and for source code.
