Since WaterTAP is based on the IDAES platform and follows its conventions, the IDAES tutorials are a good starting point for learning how to use WaterTAP.

In particular, new users should be familiar with Python and Pyomo. Because WaterTAP and IDAES share this common base, we refer users unfamiliar with Python or Pyomo to the IDAES tutorials Short introduction to Python and Pyomo or the Longer introduction to Python and Pyomo.

The tutorials included with WaterTAP are available in the “tutorials” directory on the WaterTAP GitHub Homepage: https://github.com/watertap-org/watertap/tree/main/tutorials.
