Welcome to RAMSES documentation! RAMSES is time-domain, dynamic, simulator for future electric power systems.

Installing runtime libraries

The simulator depends on the Intel redistributable libraries. You can install the runtime libraries for your system from Intel.

Alternatively, you can install [Anaconda Python](https://www.anaconda.com/download/) which come with MKL library installed. Make sure that Anaconda [is added to the path](https://github.com/mGalarnyk/Installations_Mac_Ubuntu_Windows) so that RAMSES can find the file mkl_rt.dll in Windows or mkl_rt.so in Linux.

Installing Gnuplot

To display the runtime observables, gnuplot should be installed and available in the path. You can install gnuplot from the official website.

Under Linux, you can install with your package manager. For example, under Ubuntu or Debian:

sudo apt-get install gnuplot-x11
