operating reserve assessments / operational reserve tool (ORT)

MPE has extensive experience in calculating reserve requirements in Power Systems with high shares of variable renewable energy. That experience has been translated into a dedicated software tool which allows MPE and their clients to calculate reserve requirements for primary, secondary and tertiary reserve considering:

Forecast errors of demand and VRE generation
Variability/Ramping of demand and VRE generation
Reliability of conventional generation

The tool applies probabilistic and deterministic methods to calculate the combined reserve requirements, and provides an input into our production cost optimisation tool. If you would like to discuss this tool further then please say hello
