The Weather-Informed energy System: for design, operations and markets optimization (WIS:dom) model is an extremely versatile software package. In its planning mode (P) it runs as a (non-)linear programming algorithm to find the lowest cost market solution for an entire energy system. The tool takes into account all the generator types, electric demand profiles, retirement dates, reserve requirements, costs, transmission planning, weather variables, ramping constraints, fuel restrictions, and much more when computing its decisions. It does all this at very fine granularity. The grid size can be as small as a utility or as large as a continent. If you would like more information contact us here.
