Initializing Models

Good initialization of variable values is critical for reliably solving non-linear models. To assist users with developing initial solutions for their problems, the IDAES-IP provides a number on initialization routines for different models. The routines are implemented as Initializer objects which contain an initialize method which will execute the initialization routine.


import MyInitializer

initializer = MyInitializer(**configuration)
initializer.initialize(model, **arguments)

Available Initializers

The following Initializers are available in the core libraries. Common use Initializers are generally applicable to any model type, which model specific Initializers are suitable for specific types of models or applications.
