Before taking their present positions, PowerGEM personnel managed or developed the industry standard software used for power system planning (the Power Technologies Inc. PSS/E and MUST software).
To help Maintain Reliability, PowerGEM has...
Developed TARA software for AC (non-linear) and linear contingency analysis, including advanced methods for relieving bottlenecks (security constrained economic and minimum change redispatch).
Developed software that identifies transmission bottlenecks in grids with generation resources far exceeding load (TARA).
Developed software for managing transmission & generation outage costs and reliability impacts.
Developed software to calculate available transmission or flowgate capability (ATC/AFC) in long term (1 year to 1 week) and short term (1 week) for PJM, TVA, and SPP. These calculations are based on daily network model updates (SDX files) and consider contingency constraints over a wide area of the United States Eastern Interconnection.
Developed methods and software to test whether transmission limits impair generation capacity deliverability.
Calculated export limits for stability-limited United States subregion.
Developed generator operating guides.
