Python support for the Transactive Energy Simulation Platform
Transactive Energy Simulation Platform (TESP) simulates the electric power distribution grid with transactive control of loads and resources. Current features include:
- GridLAB-D for the distribution system and residential loads
- EnergyPlus for large buildings
- MATPOWER or PYPOWER for the bulk power systems
- Bindings for transactive agents in Python, Java or C++
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 3.5 or later, with Numpy, SciPy and PYPOWER. There will be cross-platform installers of the complete TESP for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X made available on GitHub.
