Project Description


The Wind Energy Toolbox (or wetb, pronounce as wee-tee-bee) is a collection of Python scripts that facilitate working with (potentially a lot) of HAWC2, HAWCStab2, FAST or other text input based simulation tools.

Note that this toolbox is very much a WIP (work in progress). For example, some of the functions in the prepost module have a similar functions in Hawc2io. These different implementations will be merged in due time.

How to create HAWC2 DLB’s and run them on a cluster

The process of how to generated, run and post-process a design load basis (DLB) of HAWC2 simulations on a DTU Wind Energy cluster is outlined in more detail in the documentation:

You can also use the Pdap for post-processing, which includes a MS Word report generator based on a full DLB, a GUI for easy plotting of HAWC2 result files, and a Python scripting interface:

Works with Python 2 and Python 3

This module is tested for Python 2 and 3 compatibility, and works on both Windows and Linux. Testing for Mac is on the way, but in theory it should work. Python 2 and 3 compatibility is achieved with a single code base with the help of the Python module future.

Switching to Python 3 is in general a very good idea especially since Python 3.5 was released. Some even dare to say it is like eating your vegetables. So if you are still on Python 2, we would recommend you to give Python 3 a try!

You can automatically convert your code from Python 2 to 3 using the 2to3 utility which is included in Python 2.7 by default. You can also write code that is compatible with both 2 and 3 at the same time (you can find additional resources in issue 1).



Detailed installation instructions, including how to install Python from scratch, are described in the detailed installation manual.

If you know what you are doing, you can install as a package as follows:

python install

Or in development mode, install from your working directory

pip install -e ./

Or create a binary wheel distribution package with:

python bdist_wheel -d dist


Only a small part of the code is covered by unittests currently. More tests are forthcoming.
