Before MAgPIE has started to become modularized the full gams code was stored in the model core. With progressing modularization more and more code was moved from the core to specific modules. In MAgPIE 3.0 the core has been reduced to a collection of very fundamental equations and the provision of technical parameters and some basic settings. For future releases of MAgPIE the role of the core will be reduced even more. As these fundamental equations and parameters are used very widespread in the model the core still has a huge connectivity to all modules. Anyhow, contentwise there is not much happening anymore in the trunk.

Figure 0: Information exchange among modules


The trunk in MAgPIE 3.0 consists of four remaining equations for the aggregation of costs, production and land:

Equation 1:

vm\_cost\_glo = \sum_i vm\_cost\_reg(i)

Equation 2:

vm\_cost\_reg(i) = & \sum_k vm\_cost\_prod(i,k) \\
&+ \sum_{cell(i,j),land} vm\_cost\_landcon(j,land) \\
&+ \sum_{cell(i,j),k} vm\_cost\_transp(j,k) \\
&+ vm\_tech\_cost(i)\\
&+ vm\_nr\_inorg\_fert\_costs(i)\\
&+ vm\_p\_fert\_costs(i)\\
&+ vm\_emission\_costs(i)\\
&+ vm\_maccs\_costs(i)\\
&+ vm\_cost\_AEI(i)\\
&+ vm\_cost\_trade(i)\\
&+ vm\_cost\_fore(i)\\
&+ vm\_cost\_past(i)\\
&+ vm\_cost\_cdr(i)

Equation 2 collects all costs provided by the different modules on the regional level. Equation 1 calculates the global costs sum which is used in the optimization.

Equation 3:

vm\_prod\_reg(i,k) = \sum_{cell(i,j)} vm\_prod(j,k)

Equation 3 aggregates the cellular supply to the regional level to simplify computational complexity in calculations in which the cellular production distribution is not relevant.

Equation 4:

\sum_{land} vm\_land(j,land,si) = \sum_{land} pcm\_land(j,land,si)

Equation 4 makes sure that the sum of land over all land types agrees with the total available land area per cell.

Besides these calculations the core also provides information about the assumed investment horizon and the used years and time steps lengths. It also provides some conversion factors and technical information about the usage of gdx files and the maximum number of iterations for a single solve statement (if something goes wrong or has to be recalculated again).
