Nonsensical values battery stateful was created by ajszilasi@gmail.com
Hello, Firstly, my understanding is that I have written a script where I am charging a battery stateful object in one minute intervals at 100W. Could someone please confirm that my understanding of my script is correct? Secondly battery statefuli producing nonsensical values  as at a certain execution the charging power goes from 100 W to 456 KW and therefore the battery goes from a SOC of 20.74% approx to full charge (90% SOC) Please see the screenshot below and the attached script. Is there something that I am not understanding here or is this a bug in pySAM?

Hi Anton,

My test of your script results in a series of SOC values ranging from 20.0165 to 20.8264 with a -0.1 kW through the entire series.

Best regards,
Paul.

Hi Anton,

I deleted the duplicate post on this subject, but noticed that you mentioned you are using PySAM 4.0.0. The latest version is 4.1.0 -- I don't think there were changes to BatteryStateful between Versions 4.0 and 4.1, but I would recommend using the latest version.

nrel-pysam.readthedocs.io/en/main/versions.html

Best regards,
Paul.

Paul,

Thank you for your quick response. This is very weird it must be something on my system.

Im using Python3 with version 4.0.0 with python3. I'm trying to install version 4.1.0 specifically but am getting this error despite the latest release being published

Hi Anton,

Please try the command all lowercase as shown here: nrel-pysam.readthedocs.io/en/main/installation.html

The following command should work:
pip install nrel-pysam==4.1.0

Best regards,
Paul.

Paul,

Again thank you for your quick response.

Both of the issues which I described above appear to be a mac issue, I just tried installing pysam 4.1.0 and then running charging-test.py on my windows machine and they both work just fine I do not get nonsensical values in the latter on my windows machine.

This begs the question to me is there an example virtual environment setup or docker container which you would recommend for me to run pysam on?

Many thanks
