Python CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import

The Python package capeopen_thermo allows for importing CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 thermodynamic and physical Property Packages into C-Python for Windows.

The package defines the interfaces to communicate with CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic and physical Property Packages; it does not implement the thermodynamic engine itself. To use this package, you will need to have Python installed as well as a CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 compliant property package manager installed. (for example, TEA which is shipped with the freely available CAPE-OPEN simulation environment COCO Simulator).

Please note that 32-bit property package managers will only work with a 32-bit version of python whereas 64-bit property package managers will only work with a 64-bit version of python.

To get started with the Python CAPE-OPEN thermo import, type

import capeopen_thermo help(capeopen_thermo)


Python CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import will function with CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 compliant thermodynamic Property Package Managers and stand-alone Property Packages. Note that the ThermoSystemAdapter can be used to convert CAPE-OPEN version 1.0 compliant Thermo Systems to CAPE-OPEN version 1.1.

CPython version 3.7 or higher, 32-bit or 64-bit, must be installed and running at your system. pip is required to install capeopen_thermo:

pip install [wheel-name]
were [wheel-name] is the required wheel for your python version.
