Coding Style


Modelica code should use the following conventions:

  • ModelNames
  • function_names
  • v_desc, for example: Q_flow_in, P_elec, p_max, epsilon_ext

For common components, the following “acronyms” can be used in model names, model instances and packages:

  • CL: Collector
  • RC: Receiver
  • ST: Storage
  • PB: PowerBlock
  • HE: HeatExchanger
  • CN: Constants
  • CV: Conversions
  • SI: SIUnits
  • FI: Finances
