We are happy to release Smart-G v0.9.2 !
There are many modifications since v0.9.1:
  • Source code release !
    This release now includes the source code for the kernel instead of binaries.
    This allows for more flexilibity with respect to compilation options.
  • New! 3D objects (in development)
    - 3D objects require smartg option Smartg(opt3D=True) and work in either forward or backward mode
    - Designed to simulate a solar tower power plant
    - Please check notebooks/demo_notebook_objects.ipynb
    - The following features are implemented:
    -> Reflectors (mirrors with optional roughness)
    -> Receivers with flux distribution map (direct, diffuse...)
    -> Custom photon launching options (target an area or specific objects:
    see option Smartg().run(cusL=...))
    -> Utilities to quickly generate a 3D scene with heliostats and a tower
    (see smartg/visualizegeo.py)
  • New! Refraction and limb geometry
    - Please check notebooks/demo_notebook.ipynb
  • ALIS method is now validated and extended to water
    - Please check notebooks/Validation_smartg_compilation.ipynb
    which compiles all validation exercises for Smart-G and an example of
    perturbative Jacobians
  • Locale estimate: add 'zip' option to allow for non-cartesian product of
    output angles
  • Notebooks have been extended
  • New! 3D atmosphere (in development - undocumented)
