I recently have started to use calliope. As I understood energy_cap variable can show the installed capacity over the subset of the studied period. But, it just gives a single value and is not a time series variable. For example, I am planning for a 15-year time horizon, and I want to know which tech in the year 7'th is installed? and how is the installed capacity value?
Hi @vahidsabzpoosh, currently calliope does not allow a dynamic capacity expansion, i.e. one which accounts for what happens in each year. It only allows a 'static' optimisation in which you get the 'final' capacity expansion. There is however a planned development in the direction you have in mind, e.g. see calliope-project/calliope#125
How do i model a battery with an minimal power restriction in timesteps of use ?
units_equals: 1 energy_cap_per_unit: 14800 energy_cap_min_use: 0.2 energy_cap_max: 14800 # kW storage_cap_per_unit: 14800 energy_eff: 1 # 0.95 * 0.95 = 0.9025 round trip efficiency storage_loss: 0.001 # No loss over time assumed lifetime: 25 costs: monetary: interest_rate: 0.11
does not work
i still playing around with operate mode, does have energy_cap_max at transmission technology any impact an the results ? i does not look like that ...
energy_cap_max is not really suited for operate mode, as it limits the maximum capacity the optimization procedure can allocate to a given technology in a given location.
and the "operate" mode does not perform any optimization on the installed capacities, only the "plan" mode
