LinearOptimalPowerFlow class

Linear optimal power flow components are transmission components which additionally consider linear optimal power flow equations.

LinearOptimalPowerFlow class description:

class lopf.LinearOptimalPowerFlow(esM, name, commodity, reactances, losses=0, distances=None, hasCapacityVariable=True, capacityVariableDomain='continuous', capacityPerPlantUnit=1, hasIsBuiltBinaryVariable=False, bigM=None, operationRateMax=None, operationRateFix=None, tsaWeight=1, locationalEligibility=None, capacityMin=None, capacityMax=None, partLoadMin=None, sharedPotentialID=None, capacityFix=None, isBuiltFix=None, investPerCapacity=0, investIfBuilt=0, opexPerOperation=0, opexPerCapacity=0, opexIfBuilt=0, QPcostScale=0, interestRate=0.08, economicLifetime=10, technicalLifetime=None)[source]

A LinearOptimalPowerFlow component shows the behavior of a Transmission component but additionally models a linearized power flow (i.e. for AC lines). The LinearOptimalPowerFlow class inherits from the Transmission class.

Constructor for creating an LinearOptimalPowerFlow class instance. The LinearOptimalPowerFlow component specific input arguments are described below. The Transmission component specific input arguments are described in the Transmission class and the general component input arguments are described in the Component class.

Required arguments:

Parameters:reactances (Pandas DataFrame. The row and column indices of the DataFrame have to equal the in the energy system model specified locations.) – reactances for DC power flow modeling (of AC lines).
addToEnergySystemModel(esM)[source]

Function for adding a LinearOptimalPowerFlow component to the given energy system model.

Parameters:esM (EnergySystemModel class instance) – EnergySystemModel instance representing the energy system in which the component should be modeled.

LOPFModel class description:

class lopf.LOPFModel[source]

A LOPFModel class instance will be instantly created if a LinearOptimalPowerFlow class instance is initialized. It is used for the declaration of the sets, variables and constraints which are valid for the LinearOptimalPowerFlow class instance. These declarations are necessary for the modeling and optimization of the energy system model. The LOPFModel class inherits from the TransmissionModel class.
