Power System Scripting
The topics of this chapter are threefold. The first topic is to find the most adequate scenario for a didactic and research-oriented programming environment (Section 3.1). With this aim, the concepts of open and closed software as well as the differences between traditional programming and scripting are introduced and discussed (Sections 3.2 and 3.3, respectively). The second topic is to describe the minimal features that a computer language should have to be suitable for power system analysis and simulation (Section 3.4). Comparisons among various modern programming languages commonly used in computational science is given. Finally, the chapter introduces the Python programming language and provides a complete simple example of modular application implemented in this language (Section 3.5).
