Transmission Adequacy Consulting

Wind and Solar ATC (max available capacity) anywhere in the US.
Harmer and helper generators causing congestion are identified.
Determinstic studies can be expanded as probabilistic studies.
Nearby wind buses are quickly ID'd cutting wind study costs.
Distance calculator quickly finds distances of all generators.
Easy to read report listing ATCs in sorted ascending order.
Low Fees: Solar $200/bus + ($200 setup for < 5 buses).
Only $100/bus for zipflow* buses with ATC < 0.
Quick turnaround on ATC study requests.

* zipflow theory is on pages 123-128.
An example of my ATC analysis.

2016 Solar Business Festival - Let's all work together to realize this 100% non CO2 plan.
If you can run this 3 area RTS program test case using f&d Monte Carlo please email me. expands RTS1 to a two area model bringing transmission constraints into LOLP studies. has all the 1986 and 2016 files plus multi-state generators and auto LOLE capability.
RTS2016 info describes an LOLE program for evaluating the capacity value of wind, water, and solar. has four UK case studes and all associated files including the program code and executables. runs example cases verifying the new RTS program reproduces 1986 IEEE RTS paper 'exact' indices.
