As the first step to create your own pandapipes network, you have to call the function
create_empty_network(). This creates the pandapipesNet data structure which can then be
filled with additional elements described in the following sections.
- create_empty_network(name='', fluid=None, add_stdtypes=True)
This function initializes the pandapipes datastructure.
name (string, default None) – Name for the network
fluid (Fluid or str, default None) – A fluid that can be added to the net from the start. Should be either of type Fluid (c.f. pandapipes.properties.fluids.Fluid) or a string which refers to a standard fluid type used to call create_fluid_from_lib. A fluid is required for pipeflow calculations, but can also be added later.
add_stdtypes (bool, default True) – Flag whether to add a dictionary of typical pump and pipe std types
net - pandapipesNet with empty tables
- Return type
>>> net1 = create_empty_network("my_first_pandapipesNet", "lgas") >>> net2 = create_empty_network()
