Yes, I have still been working on the implementation of the renewable module in the master version of the WITCH model… Technical issues are numerous and an optimal code configuration is yet to be found.
One of the most problematic aspects is that the convergence is very slow, so sometimes up to an hour, or even more, is needed just to check the impact of one small change. But honestly, the most problematic aspect is that I really hate this debugging activity and similar stuff…
But that’s life: sometimes you have to do things that you don’t like too much (euphemism…)! In any case, I really hope to complete the task no later than May 22, i.e. the day of the next internal modeling meeting of the WITCH team.
Bottom line: never give up!
