ENLSIP algorithm is designed to solve nonlinear least squares problems under nonlinear constraints. Implemented in Fortran77, it has been successfully used for decades by Hydro-Québec, the main electricity supplier for the province of Quebec in Canada, to calibrate its short-term electricity demand forecast models. A conversion into Julia has been developed to improve reliability and readability of the original code. We now present it as a Julia numerical optimization open-source package
