Power TAC Simulation Server
Power TAC is a competitive simulation designed to support the study of retail electric power markets, especially as they relate to managing distributed renewable power sources. For more information, see http://www.powertac.org.
Go to the Power TAC developer's wiki at https://github.com/powertac/powertac-server/wiki for information on design, development, and deployment of the Power TAC simulation server.
PowerTAC Continuous Integration Server
The server is built and tested on a regular basis on the Minnesota jenkins server.
This is a multi-module structure, using maven for dependency management and build automation, and using git submodules to tie the pieces together and help create the correct directory structure in a development environment. This module is the root. It contains the parent pom, and the core server module. Other modules include server-interface, accounting, auctioneer, default-broker, distribution-utility, genco, and household-customer.
To populate a development environment, simply clone this repo, then populate the submodules. You can do this with
submodule init followed by
submodule update (the Pro Git book has a good overview), or you can use the script
src/main/scripts/submodule-setup.sh, which lets you specify a remote and branch (typically
master). Note that the submodule definitions are contained in the file
.gitmodules that the current version of that file contains read-only urls for the modules, and that those may be out-of-date. If you plan to work on the code, you can simply change the URL for an individual module, as in
git remote set-url origin email@example.com:powertac/auctioneer.git.
To update your development environment, you can always do
git submodule foreach git pull origin master
Note that some modules, such as common and the Sample Broker, are not submodules of powertac-server. If you need sources for those, you will need to pull them down separately.
