GridLAB-D is a new power system simulation tool that provides valuable information to users who design and operate electric power transmission and distribution systems, and to utilities that wish to take advantage of the latest smart grid technology. It incorporates advanced modeling techniques with high-performance algorithms to deliver the latest in end-use load modeling technology integrated with three-phase unbalanced power flow, and retail market systems. Historically, the inability to effectively model and evaluate smart grid technologies has been a barrier to adoption; GridLAB-D is designed to address this problem. User documentation can be found at: http://gridlab-d.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Quick_links The source code is available from GitHub. See https://github.com/gridlab-d/gridlab-d. Issue tracking is handled by GitHub. See https://github.com/gridlab-d/gridlab-d/issues.

Ab initio simulator for thermal transport and lattice anharmonicity
ALAMODE is designed for analyzing lattice anharmonicity and lattice thermal conductivity of solids. By using an external DFT package such as VASP and Quantum ESPRESSO, you can extract harmonic and anharmonic force constants straightforwardly with ALAMODE. Using the anharmonic force constants, you can also calculate lattice thermal conductivity from first principles. For more information about ALAMODE, please visit the following webpages: Documentation : http://alamode.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ git repository : https://github.com/ttadano/alamode
