A5a: A Tool for Addressing Hydro Generation Modeling Gaps in Transmission System Operation and Planning
The intent is for steady-state and time-domain simulations of the system to match specific water conditions as closely as possible and avoid unrealistic dispatch decisions from hydro-based generation in power system operation and planning, wide scale, system studies.
This work addresses these modeling gaps and presents a tool developed by three national labs (PNNL, NREL and INL) used to generate accurate representative models of hydro generation for power system simulation studies.
