Title: CIME, Common Infrastructure for Modeling the Earth v. 5.0

Abstract

CIME is the software infrastructure for configuring, building, running, and testing an Earth system model. It can be developed and tested as stand-alone software, but its main role is to be integrating into the CESM and ACME Earth system models.

  • This report provides a milestone with a description outlining a need for standardized, shared tools.
  • One of the goals of the HYBRID modeling and simulation project is to assess the economic viability of hybrid systems in a market that contains renewable energy sources like wind. The idea is that it is possible for the nuclear plant to sell non-electric energy cushions, which absorb (at least partially) the volatility introduced by the renewable energy sources. This system is currently modeled in the Modelica programming language. To assess the economics of the system, an optimization procedure is trying to find the minimal cost of electricity production. The RAVEN code is used as a driver for the wholemore » problem. It is assumed that at this stage, the HYBRID modeling and simulation framework can be classified as non-safety “research and development” software. The associated quality level is Quality Level 3 software. This imposes low requirements on quality control, testing and documentation. The quality level could change as the application development continues.Despite the low quality requirement level, a workflow for the HYBRID developers has been defined that include a coding standard and some documentation and testing requirements. The repository performs automated unit testing of contributed models. The automated testing is achieved via an open-source python script called BuildingsP from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. BuildingsPy runs Modelica simulation tests using Dymola in an automated manner and generates and runs unit tests from Modelica scripts written by developers. In order to assure effective communication between the different national laboratories a biweekly videoconference has been set-up, where developers can report their progress and issues. In addition, periodic face-face meetings are organized intended to discuss high-level strategy decisions with management. A second means of communication is the developer email list. This is a list to which everybody can send emails that will be received by the collective of the developers and managers involved in the project. Thirdly, to exchange documents quickly, a SharePoint directory has been set-up. SharePoint allows teams and organizations to intelligently share, and collaborate on content from anywhere.« less
  • This volume is a user's guide for the flexible network definition software that allows the user to manipulate the basic data files to design a network suitable for a particular study. The flexible-network software allows the user to automatically define study regions of any size (county to multi-state) and to use different levels of transportation network detail within each region. This allows the user to model a completely detailed transportation network in the regions of primary interest while modeling movements to and from these regions on an aggregate network in the surrounding regions, thus reducing computational requirements. Because of thismore » flexibility and the numerous support data bases, the flexible network definition capability makes it easy to set up the Freight Network Equilibrium Model (FNEM) or the Shortest Path Analysis and Display (SPAD) program for a new study. The network data bases include data on the rail, highway, water, and pipelines systems in the United States. FNEM is a predictive model that simulates the decisions of both shippers (buyers and sellers of goods) and carriers (rail, truck, and barge operators) and takes into account the competition for transportation facilities and congestion delays caused by all freight movements. The Model produces as output detailed routings, cost estimates, and delay estimates for all shipments and total traffic levels on all facilities.« less
