Electricity Build Rate constraint
This is a quick attempt. It is probably both wrong and buggy, so don't trust it yet.
The purpose of this application is to help people to explore what would happen to electricity generation emissions in the UK out to 2050 under a variety of different assumptions. It is based around a very simple excel model.
- Ruby 2.0
- A working C compiler
- A webserver configured to run rack
To configure a webserver on OSX (done after setup below)
gem install powder powder install cd /directory_where_this_program_is_installed powder link powder open
The resulting website only works properly on the latest generation of browsers.
Only tested on OSX 10.8.3 so far.
bundle bundle exec ruby make-model.rb
Written in a combination of Ruby and Coffeescript.
Fixes accepted, preferably using 'Fork&Pull' on github: http://gun.io/blog/how-to-github-fork-branch-and-pull-request/
Updating the model
If you have changed the excel spreadsheet then run the following in this directory:
rake clean rake
You will need to restart the server
powder restart and potentially clear your browser's cache to see the results.
The parallel demo
This is a bit experimental.
bundle exec ruby util/montecarlo.rb > public/runs.csv powder open go to /parallel.html in your browser
