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.
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:
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 setup.py install
Or in development mode, install from your working directory
pip install -e ./
Or create a binary wheel distribution package with:
python setup.py bdist_wheel -d dist
Only a small part of the code is covered by unittests currently. More tests are forthcoming.
General Time Series Data Format, a binary hdf5 data format for storing time series data. - gtsdf: read/write/append gtsdf files - unix_time: convert between datetime and unix time (seconds since 1/1/1970)
Module for working with “Design load cases” (Code independent) - high_level Class for working with the highlevel dlc excell sheet
Module for creating an arbitrary number of HAWC2 simulations, and optionally corresponding execution scripts for a PBS Torque cluster (Linux), simple bash (Linux), or Windows batch scripts. A post-processing module is also included that calculates statistical parameters, performs rainflow counting for fatigue load calculations, and create load envelopes.
