Structure of OSeMOSYS¶
In OSeMOSYS, like usually in linear programs, sets, parameters and variables are defined. In this section, the sets, parameters and variables existing in OSeMOSYS are listed and briefly described. Illustrative examples on how to assign values for each of these will be given in the following Sections.
Sets¶
The ‘sets’ define the physical structure of a model, usually independent from the specific scenarios which will be run. They define the time domain and time split, the spatial coverage, the technologies and energy vectors to be considered, etc. For instance, when a variable is defined as a function of the set ‘YEAR’ it will be indicated as variablename[y] at it will be computed for every year listed in the set. The sets of OSeMOSYS are presented in the Table below.
Name | Description | Index |
---|---|---|
YEAR | It represents the time frame of the model, it contains all the years to be considered in the study. | y |
TECHNOLOGY | It includes any element of the energy system that changes a commodity from one form to another, uses it or supplies it. All system components are set up as a ‘technology’ in OSeMOSYS. As the model is an abstraction, the modeller is free to interpret the role of a technology at will, where relevant. It may for example represent a single real technology (such as a power plant) or can represent a heavily aggregated collection of technologies (such as the stock of several million light bulbs), or may even simply be a ‘dummy technology’, perhaps used for accounting purposes. | t |
TIMESLICE | It represents the time split of each modelled year, therefore the time resolution of the model. Common to several energy systems modelling tools (incl. MESSAGE / MARKAL / TIMES), the annual demand is ‘sliced’ into representative fractions of the year. It is necessary to assess times of the year when demand is high separately from times when demand is low, for fuels that are expensive to store. In order to reduce the computation time, these ‘slices’ are often grouped. Thus, the annual demand may be split into aggregate seasons where demand levels are similar (such as ‘summer, winter and intermediate’). Those seasons may be subdivided into aggregate ‘day types’ (such as workdays and weekends), and the day further sub divided (such as into day and night) depending on the level of demand. | l |
FUEL | It includes any energy vector, energy service or proxies entering or exiting technologies. These can be aggregate groups, individual flows or artificially separated, depending on the requirements of the analysis. | f |
EMISSION | It includes any kind of emission potentially deriving from the operation of the defined technologies. Typical examples would include atmospheric emissions of greenhouse gasses, such as CO2. | e |
MODE_OF_OPERATION | It defines the number of modes of operation that the technologies can have. If a technology can have various input or output fuels and it can choose the mix (i.e. any linear combination) of these input or output fuels, each mix can be accounted as a separate mode of operation. For example, a CHP plant may produce heat in one mode of operation and electricity in another. | m |
REGION | It sets the regions to be modelled, e.g. different countries. For each of them, the supply-demand balances for all the energy vectors are ensured, including trades with other regions. In some occasions it might be computationally more convenient to model different countries within the same region and differentiate them simply by creating ad hoc fuels and technologies for each of them. | r |
SEASON | It gives indication (by successive numerical values) of how many seasons (e.g. winter, intermediate, summer) are accounted for and in which order. This set is needed if storage facilities are included in the model. | ls |
DAYTYPE | It gives indication (by successive numerical values) of how many day types (e.g. workday, weekend) are accounted for and in which order. This set is needed if storage facilities are included in the model. | ld |
DAILYTIMEBRACKET | It gives indication (by successive numerical values) of how many parts the day is split into (e.g. night, morning, afternoon, evening) and in which order these parts are sorted. This set is needed if storage facilities are included in the model. | lh |
STORAGE | It includes storage facilities in the model. | s |
Parameters¶
The parameters are the user-defined numerical inputs to the model. While usually the structure of a model, therefore the sets, remains fixed across scenarios, it is common practice to change the values of some parameters when running different scenarios and/or sensitivity analyses. As will be clear in the following, each parameter is a function of the elements in one or more sets. For instance, CapitalCost[r,t,y] indicates that the capital cost is a function of the region (r), the technology (t) and the year (y) [1] . A list and brief description of the parameters declared in the master version of OSeMOSYS is given in the Table below.

Variables¶
The variables are the outputs computed by the code. As much as the parameters, also the variables are functions of the elements in one or more sets. In the following Table, a list and brief description of all the variables computed by the code of OSeMOSYS (in its full version) is given. As will be explained next in this manual, a shortened version of OSeMOSYS has been created, to improve the computational capability at the expenses of the readability of the code. In such version, only some of the variables here listed are computed. When reasonable, the domain of several variables has been constrained to be positive, in order to decrease the size of the solution space and therefore the computational effort.

Equations¶
The OSeMOSYS code is divided into blocks of equations that comprises one objective function and several constraints. The blocks of code allow for a modular structure in different functionalities can be added or removed based on the user’s needs. This flexible, modular structure allows OSeMOSYS to be used for a wide range of applications of different scales, complexities, and objectives.
Objective function¶
This equation represents the overall objective of the model. The default in OSeMOSYS is to minimise the total system cost, over the entire model period.
minimize cost: sum{r in REGION, y in YEAR} TotalDiscountedCost[r,y];
Rate of demand¶
The equation below is used to generate the term RateOfDemand, from the user-provided data for SpecifiedAnnualDemand and SpecifiedDemandProfile. The RateOfDemand is defined for each combination of commodity, TimeSlice and Year.
s.t. EQ_SpecifiedDemand{r in REGION, l in TIMESLICE, f in FUEL, y in YEAR}:

Capacity Adequacy A¶
Used to first calculate total capacity of each technology for each year based on existing capacity from before the model period (ResidualCapacity), AccumulatedNewCapacity during the modelling period, and NewCapacity installed in each year. It is then ensured that this Capacity is sufficient to meet the RateOfTotalActivity in each TimeSlice and Year. An additional constraint based on the size, or capacity, of each unit of a Technology is included (CapacityOfOneTechnologyUnit). This stipulates that the capacity of certain Technology can only be a multiple of the user-defined CapacityOfOneTechnologyUnit.
s.t. CAa1_TotalNewCapacity{r in REGION, t in TECHNOLOGY, y in YEAR}:
AccumulatedNewCapacity[r,t,y] = sum{yy in YEAR: y-yy < OperationalLife[r,t] && y-yy>=0} NewCapacity[r,t,yy];

s.t. CAa5_TotalNewCapacity{r in REGION, t in TECHNOLOGY, y in YEAR:
CapacityOfOneTechnologyUnit[r,t,y]<>0}: CapacityOfOneTechnologyUnit[r,t,y]*NumberOfNewTechnologyUnits[r,t,y] = NewCapacity[r,t,y];
NOTE: OSeMOSYS uses Mixed Integer Programming to solve models that define CapacityOfTechnologyUnit. Using this parameter is likely to increase the model computation time.
