On this page we look at how you should prepare the jEPlus project and load it into jEPlus+EA for a sensitivity analysis followed by optimisation.
Let's start with getting and installing jEPlus+EA v2. The program is written in Java and distributed as a zip archive containing the main JAR file, the supporting files and an example project. You can download the distribution package from here:
Before launching jEPlus+EA v2, you may also need to:
run-jEPlus+EA.bat. Please note that double-clicking on jEPlus+EA.jar to start the program is NOT recommended.
Launching the program for the first time, you will see a couple of error messages in the terminal window. This is normal, and the reported missing files will be created automatically.
Once the GUI is shown, a log-on dialogue will appear, prompting you to put in the email address and the password you have registered on the ENSIMS Web platform. If you haven't done so, please click on Register an account link on the log-on dialogue, which will open a web browser and take you to JEA web portal where you can find a link to create an account.
The registration process is quick and easy. You only need to provide a valid email address and your name, an activation email will then be sent to your email address. There you can find a link to set the password, after which you will be able to log on to the system. Use this email address and password to connect to JEA service from jEPlus+EA v2.
If successful, you will see a few projects are already there on the Project List tab. These are the example or other projects shared with you. You can open the existing projects, or start creating new ones.
jEPlus+EA v2 is built for jEPlus projects. However, in order to make setting up parametric and optimisation analyses easier, you check the following things when preparing the project.
