AbstractThis paper presents a novel tool for data exchange between Modelica and a growing open source programming language, Python, especially for co-simulation purposes. This tool was developed using Python and targeted to the Dymola IDE. However, general concepts can be translated to any other language. A case study of a complex Modelica model is presented to illustrate how the tool can be used for solving an inverse problem (i.e. model calibration) that could not be possible using only Modelica.
