Welcome to the Backbone GitLab Wiki!
- Energy Network Structure: Introduction to Grids, Nodes and Units is a brief intro to Backbone theoretical structure.
- Example data sets contains small example datasets for getting started with Backbone modelling.
- Input files explains the basics of necessary inputs and a walkthrough of input files.
- Quick Start includes detailed installation instructions for cloning the Backbone repository and getting Backbone running on GAMS.
- Results explains the basics of outputs, some tips on how to manage results and how to troubleshoot.

The equations of Backbone are presented in that article. However, many of them are stylized for clarity and conciseness. The full equations are in the model code. We hope to have more of them written out also in the Features wiki pages.
Feel free to write a page about any aspect of Backbone you think you can explain, and you think might be helpful for others using/developing Backbone.
