Here are some links to publications, organizations, institutions, projects and people; this is not intended as a commercial endorsement of any kind.
Some of the above I work with, contribute to, or use in my research.
Where to publish?
These is my shortlist of the journals that I think are relevant. I only list Open Access journals where I have published with colleagues, and/or where I have evidence of unbiased quality peer review process.
Where to find good researchers and their teams in my research areas?
This is a list of collaborators and/or people I admire… incomplete, and in no particular order.
The Sys. Id. Crowd
- Prof. Xavier Bombois, École Centrale Lyon, France, works on System Identification and is also CNRS Research Director with Laboratoire Ampere.
The Modelica Crowd
- Prof. Peter Fritzon, Linköping Univ., Sweden leading the OpenModelica effort.
- Prof. Francesco Casella, Polimi, Italy, developer of the ThermoPower Modelica library and many other cool things.
- Dr. Dietmar Winkler, HSN, Norway, expert in all Modelica things, and member of OpenIPSL
- Dr. Michael Tiller Modelica-guru and modeling code-master at Xogeny! Inspiration engine for the software-peasants like myself.
The Power Systems Crowd
- Dr. David Laverty, QUB, Belfast, leading the OpenPMU project.
- Prof. Mario Paolone, EPFL, Switzerland, leading the DESL.
- Prof. Federico Milano, UCD, Dublin creator of PSAT and DOME.
- Dr. Barry Rawn, CMU Africa, Rwanda, personal website here.
- Prof. Mohammadreza Barzegaran at Lamar Uni’s LAREM research team.

Where to get a PMU? - Build one! OpenPMU Project
The “legacy” OpenPMU version 1 is being documented and maintained at ALSETLab, here.
What tools you use in your research that are not made by yourself?
Modelica and the FMI Standard
- Modelica Association: developing the Modelica language standard and FMI standard.
- FMI Website: providing info on the FMI standard.
- OpenModelica: Open Source Modelica Consortium and the OSS OpenModelica environment.
- jModelica:extensible Modelica-based open source platform for optimization, simulation and analysis of complex dynamic systems.
- Modelon’s tools and libraries rock!
- Papyrus: Papyrus-RT provides an implementation of the UML-RT modeling language together with editors, code generator for C++ and a supporting runtime system and model-compare (diff/merge) capabilities.
- LBL’s Simulation Research Group Tools at GitHub and [GitHub Account] (https://github.com/lbl-srg): The Simulation Research Group specializes in the research, development and deployment of software that support the design and operation of buildings, as well as the research of next-generation building energy and control systems.
- Python Migration: list of tips and resources for migrating from Matlab to Python-based systems using NumPy and SciPy.
- Anaconda Python: environment for Python and R that includes several pre-installed libraries and tools (e.g. Spyder and Jupyter).
- MPCPy python-based open-source platform for model predictive control in buildings.
System Identification Tools
- RaPId Toolbox, MATLAB-based (unfortunately) - this one we made with my students…
- DSI Toolbox MATLAB-based (unfortunately).
- CONTSID Toolbox MATLAB-based (unfortunately).
What can I use to learn Modelica, Python, etc…
Modelica Learning Resources
- modelica.university: Interactive web-based Modelica models and simulation showcases. ** See ** the
Tour of Modelica.
- Modelica in Action create, compile and simulate Modelica models using JModelica.org.
