Acknowledgement

The initial development of openMod.sh was funded from September 2014 until March 2017 by the Gesellschaft für Energie und Klimaschutz Schleswig-Holstein GmbH (EKSH), by the ARGE Netz GmbH & Co. KG and by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Industrie- und Handelskammern zu Flensburg, zu Kiel und zu Lübeck (IHK Schleswig-Holstein).

Requirements

The packages that openmod.sh depends on are listed in requirements.txt. So until openmod.sh is properly packaged, it's best to just do:

pip install -r requirements.txt

to install all necessary requirements.

Configuration

Openmod.sh depends on oemof.db. Have a look at it's README for information on how to configure database access. Note that openMod.sh expects its database configuration to be in a config.ini section named openMod.sh R/W. Be careful. As the 'R/W' suggests, the editor expects read and write access. Additionaly to the standard oemof.db options the following section have to be specified: schema: e.g. public, the database schema to be used webport: e.g. 8000, the port being used when running openmod.sh.py

Installation and Execution

As openmod.sh is not a full fledged python package yet, there's really nothing to install, you'll have to clone the repository manually. As mentioned in Requirements. After you have done this, you should have a directory containing the source code for openmod.sh. Let's call it OPENMOD.SH for the reminder of this section.

Setting up the openmod.sh database (aka.: create the tables)

Openmod.sh expects its database structure to already be set up in a working state so that all necessary tables already exist and data can be queried and stored. Setting things up is best achieved by a few lines of Python code, which the fine folks behind flask-sqlalchemy were kind enough to document.

Initializing the application to work with flask-sqlalchemy is taken care of in the openmod.sh codebase, so all you have to do is import the right modules, push an application context, create the tables and commit the transaction. To do so, cd into the repository's directory and run:

python setup-database.py

Ready to start

Now you're ready to start openmod.sh which is as simple as

python openmod.sh.py

Note that you should still be residing in OPENMOD.SH, obviously. Then open your browser and point it to the port which is specified in config.ini.

To import a scenario navigate to the Import page and choose a suitable file on your hard disc. You can find example files in OPENMOD.SH/data/scenarios.

Enjoy.
