Time Series Aggregation Module (tsam)

Time Series Aggregation Module (tsam) is a Python package which uses different machine learning algorithms for the aggregation of typical periods.


tsam is applicable to all types of time series, including weather data and load data, and can aggregate single time series or multiple time series at the same time. The module is able to significantly reduce input time series for energy system models, and therefore the model's complexity and computational time.

Open-source available here.
