Technical Conference on Increasing Real-Time and Day-Ahead Market Efficiency through Improved Software – 2012

Featuring Guest Speaker Mr. Tao Guo

Click here to access the online conference agenda.
Location: Washington, DC
Dates: 25/06/2012 – 27/06/2012

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or FERC, is an independent agency that regulates the interstate transmission of natural gas, oil, and electricity. FERC also regulates natural gas and hydropower projects. This conference will bring together diverse experts from ISOs/RTOs, non-market utilities, the software industry, government, research centers and academia for the purposes of stimulating discussion and sharing of information about the technical aspects of these issues and identifying fruitful avenues for research.

We would like to congratulate our very own Mr Tao Guo, Manager of Tech Services on the opportunity to present his paper titled ‘Evaluating the Wind/Solar Generation Variability and Forecast Error Mitigation Using Day-Ahead and Real-Time Market Interleaved/Sequential Simulations’ at this year’s FERC Technical Conference, 25th – 27th June. Take the opportunity to ‘see’ and experience first-hand the features and applications of PLEXOS Day-Ahead and Real-Time capabilities. Build your knowledge and learn more about PLEXOS Simulator features in Mathematical Programming, Market Analysis, Wind Integration, Electric Price Forecast, Capacity Expansion Planning, Stochastic Optimization and much more…

PLEXOS® Version 6.206 NOW Available

Energy Exemplar is proud to announce the latest update to the successful PLEXOS for Power Systems Version 6 software. PLEXOS 6.206 introduces a significant new feature in power market modelling – interleaved simulations. This simulation mode, unique to the PLEXOS software, will revolutionize the way you study power markets that involve multiple time frames such as day-ahead and real-time markets, and the way that you perform assessments of renewable generation integration, value of storage and smart grids. Combine this feature with the power of PLEXOS stochastic optimization, true hydro and pumped storage optimization, integrated ancillary services and transmission co-optimization and you can see how PLEXOS can truly be described as the leader in its field.

PLEXOS 6.206 is available for download now. Check out the full set of release notes to find out about the other new features in this version including LOLP constraints for LT Plan and ancillary services, new integer fuel selection logic, inter-regional sharing of ancillary services, and an all-new warning and error message management interface.
