Generate Clean Energy More Efficiently With Powerful Data Analytics
| By CAMO Software
Advanced data analysis tools can help renewable energy companies operate more efficiently, from R&D - such as developing more efficient solar panels and more robust wind turbine blades - to solving common problems such as predicting turbine breakdowns and optimising the use of equipment depending on local conditions and demand.

Combining First Principle Models with MVA and DOE
| By CAMO Software
Chemical engineering is a discipline that to a certain degree relies on deterministic or first principle models. These models may describe flow rates, mass balance, energy and other principal properties of a system. But to quote the famous chemist/statistician George Box: “All models are wrong but some are useful”.

CAMO Delves into Assumption Free Modeling and Monitoring of Batch Processes
| By CAMO Software
Modeling strategies currently in use for the monitoring of batch processes wheremultivariate data are available have some limitations, particularly for batches where the true starting or end point are not the same on an absolute time scale, or the batch progression varies among batches.

PLEXOS Study of the Italian Power System and Market in the Medium-Term: Realities and Expectations of Renewables Integration
| By Energy Exemplar
One of the main developments of the last few years on the Italian power market has been the significant increase of renewable capacity in the form of wind and solar power plants. Using a PLEXOS dataset based on data available from Terna and various utilities, we have modeled the Italian power market considering the six geographical zones and created the medium term expected scenarios from the Terna information available for 2012 and the published 2013 grid development plan.

Adjustable Speed Pumped-Storage Hydro-Generator (PSH) Evaluation by PLEXOS
| By Energy Exemplar
Energy Exemplar is engaged in this project sponsored by the Department of Energy through Argonne National Laboratory to perform the power system operation simulation to evaluate the fixed-speed pumped-storage hydro-generators (FS PSH) and the adjustable-speed pumped-storage hydro-generators (AS PSH) in the areas of: quantifying the value of the FS and AS PSHs under different market conditions and for different levels of variable renewable generation (wind and solar) in the system; and providing information about the full range of benefits and value of PSH and CH plants and recommendations for appropriate business models for future PSH projects.

North of Delta Off-Stream Storage (NODOS) Project Benefits Study
| By Energy Exemplar
The economic viability study of the proposed North-of-Delta Off-Stream storage (NODOS) pump storage project was originally completed by the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) and the California Department of Water Resources (CDWR) in early 2013. This document summarizes an update to that study performed for USBR, by Energy Exemplar (EE) and Pinnacle Consulting (Pinnacle), consulting firms specializing in the evaluation of power generation assets in California and in the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) system, which includes the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, the northern portion of Baja California, Mexico, and all or portions of 14 Western states in the United States including California.

Evaluation of the Impact of Including Start Costs in SEM 2020 Wind-Integration Scenarios
| By Energy Exemplar
Base load thermal unit start costs include energy (fuel and CO2) and non-energy (wear and tear, extra O&M) components. Most wind integration studies have ignored non-energy components. This research examines the effect of including non-energy start costs on scheduling.

Irish and British Historical Electricity Prices and Implications for the Future
| By Energy Exemplar
This paper compares retail and wholesale electricity prices in SEM, the market of Ireland, and BETTA in Great Britain. Estimated wholesale costs are much lower in BETTA. We show that this is mostly because the wholesale price in BETTA is set too low to cover generation costs, although it is compensated by large retail margins. The substantial need for new investment in generation in Great Britain suggests that returns to generators will have to increase. Developing a market mechanism to compensate generators fairly while simultaneously reducing retail revenue will help in achieving this goal.

An Assessment of the Impact of Irish Electric Vehicles Target on 2020 Wholesale Electricity Prices
| By Energy Exemplar
The Irish Government has set a target that 10% of all vehicles in its transport fleet are to be powered by electricity by 2020 as part of its strategy to deliver the 10% RES-T target. This paper investigates what impacts on the power system and electricity market in Ireland the electrification of 10% of the transport fleet will have.

Reduced Network Modeling of WECC as a Market Design Prototype
| By Energy Exemplar
California’s administration, legislature, and energy regulators have adopted aggressive targets for renewable energy, which will result in profound changes in markets and system operations as the resource portfolio shifts from heavy reliance on natural gas as a fuel for electric generation to intermittent, often remote resources. As part of determining workable modeling approaches as changes in market design are considered, this paper examines the necessary level of detail for modeling unit commitment.
