0.3.2 (2022-12-00)#

  • Improvements

    • Add information on evaluation to docs.

  • Fixes

    • Improve plotting/widget code to comply with stricter shape testing in newer matplotlib versions

0.3.1 (2022-11-03)#

  • Features

    • New building distributions:

      • Building Distribution C: varies battery and solar installation size.

      • Building Distribution D: varies battery, solar installation and load consumption size/scale.

      • Building distribution E: varies same as above, and adds irreducible noise to load and solar traces.

  • Environment & distribution changes (! indicates that the change may affect experimental results)

    • ! Parameter default of grid_peak_threshold changed from 4.0kW to 2.0kW in all environments, including those of building distribution B.

    • The load and solar traces in HouseEnv now can be augmented with irreducible noise. This is set via the solar/load_noise_magnitude parameter of the EnvConfig.

  • Improvements

    • Update to docs on distributions, wrappers and more.

0.3.0 (2022-10-26)#

  • Features

    • Add experiment script

    • Add extensive evaluation features

    • Add support for much slower speed in game widget

    • Add benchmarks

    • Add support for setting tasks in environment

    • Add wrappers:

      • that add task parameters to observation space.

      • that clip the reward

      • that clip the action space

      • that normalise observation space

  • Improvements

    • Add clock and day to game widget

    • Design improvements for game widget

    • Action spaces dtype can now be set in env cfg

0.2.1 (2022-09-12)#

  • Features

    • Add time_of_day variable to observation space.

  • Improvements

    • The solve function is now directly imported with bauwerk, to simplify usage.

    • Additional sections added to documentation.

    • Add more grid parameters to SolarBatteryHouseEnv configuration.

  • Fixes:

    • Ensure solver outputs actions that are valid in environment (i.e. normalised)

0.2.0 (2022-09-09)#

  • Features:

    • Add game widget based on SolarBatteryHouseEnv.

      • Includes browser-based version of Bauwerk game that can be played by anybody without installing anything.

    • Add support for selling to the grid in SolarBatteryHouseEnv.

  • Improvements:

    • Add explicit CVXPY-based solver in bauwerk.envs.solvers for SolarBatteryHouseEnv that was missing earlier.

    • Update SolarBatteryHouseEnv to comply with new gym step API by returning truncated value.

    • Add automatic github-actions-based testing of package.

0.1.0 (2022-08-12)#

  • First release on PyPI.

  • Features:

    • SolarBatteryHouseEnv: a simple environment representing a single family home with a solar photovoltaic installations and a home battery that can be controlled.

    • Optional integration with CVXPY to compute optimal actions in Bauwerk environments.
