Post: ETSAP Training + Workshop Beijing 2014

Hi all,I was wondering whether there is already information available on the venue for the TIMES training courses and the ETSAP Workshop (and possibly some recommended hotels nearby)? Also, the w...

Post: Storage processes in peaking constraints

I realize that both the issues can be avoided and so this is not a major issue. However, a modeler would have to be aware of the issues in order to avoid them.If I have some time, I will take a look o...

Post: Storage processes in peaking constraints

Indeed, in TIMES you can only have a single capacity for each process.As my example shows, however, the energetic storage capacity (energy units) is not the only parameter of importance for stora...

Post: Storage processes in peaking constraints

I'm only discovering this topic now. Thanks for bringing this issue up Antti, I would probably not have noticed this issue. However, for me it seems to be the case that it is essential to take into...

Post: about storage processes

Thank you Antti! For calculating the losses, I forgot to take into account that VAR_ACT does not represent the actual content of the storage in a particular TS. Regarding my first question, th...

Post: about storage processes

I have been playing around with the different parameters related to storage devices (across time-slices). I have two concerns with the STG_LOSS parameter: 1) As VAR_ACT_s represents the energy stor...

As I'm focusing mainly on the use of the available capacity, discrepancies between the investment cost and fixed costs in the objective function and the assumed simplified evolution of capacity do...

Post: EQ_CAPACT

I have a question regarding the bounding of an activity by its capacity (EQ_CAPACT). First, at p.160 of the part II documentation of the TIMES model, it says that within one period, the activity is...
