[Rebuild of Version 0.6.1]
Minor UI Bug Fixes
Fixed error creating new dataset
Fixed error selecting dataset time series file
Release 0.6.0 marks a major step forward for the PCWG Analysis Tool (PCWG-AT). This release implements several key points of feedback raised by PCWG members during 2015-2016, specifically:
• Usability: Several changes have been made to make PCWG-AT easier to use.
• Turbine parameters moved: Following user feedback the turbine parameters (cut-in speed, cut-out speed, rated power, diameter and hub height) have been moved from the Analysis to the Dataset. This change acknowledges that these turbine parameters are inherently tied to datasets and will not charge according to what analysis is performed. This change has also helped simplify the implementation of the dataset portfolio feature (see below).
• Faster and easier PCWG-Share-X participation: A new dataset portfolio feature has been introduced to reduce the time and effort required to participate in PCWG-Share-X. After initial set up participation should now take ‘one click’.
• Enhanced Relative File Path Support: The handling of relative file paths within PCWG-AT has been made more robust.
Additionally there has been a substantial overhaul of the PCWG-AT source code structure, specifically the separation of the code into several component libraries. This re-organisation has helped increase the maintainability of the code and will hopefully lead to faster development and issue resolution in the future.
