The live recording of the presentation is available from the CAPE-OPEN Channel on YouTube.

Jasper explained first why he decided to develop such a Unit Operation following the assessment made at the CAPE-OPEN 2020 Annual Meeting of the appeal of Python for many participants. Jasper made then the point that while COBIA-based, this Python CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation is not the Python language binding that may be developed by CO-LaN later on, within Phase III of the COBIA project.

Jasper went through the different features offered by his wrapper of a Python model before sharing his experience with Python in the context of CAPE-OPEN. The concerns and issues he pointed to will have to be addressed by CO-LaN when considering a Python language binding in COBIA.

This presentation was followed by a presentation by Martin GAINVILLE from IFP Energies Nouvelles where Martin explained the use made of the Python Unit Operation.
