Advanced modeling solutions that help meet your business needs

In the rapidly changing world of the electric power industry, one thing has remained constant — the need to accurately model the economic operation of the power system in order to make informed decisions. Whether your interest is in assessing the value of a portfolio of generating units or in identifying the transmission bottlenecks that most seriously constrain the economic operation of the system, you must capture the complex interaction between generation and transmission systems. Consulting Services offers the Multi-Area Production Simulation Software program (MAPS), which provides the detailed modeling your business needs.

MAPS applications

Identify transmission path congestion and calculate the associated production costs on the economic dispatch of generation.
Evaluate system operations given various future resource plans.
Measure the impact on total system emissions that result from the addition of new generation or new regulatory policies.
Understand when resources will switch fuels based on availability and least cost.
Evaluate the effects of energy storage and additional transmission.

Planning for uncertainty: The value of stochastics

With the present uncertainty in future policy goals, technology advancements, decarbonization, electrification, and various other factors, planning practices need to evolve. Techniques exist to account for these uncertainties and should be used to develop more robust and adaptable plans which are prepared to handle the unpredictability of the future grid.
