Applications and benefits
OpSim supports non-real-time, i.e. accelerated, simulations to investigate longer time spans. Users can connect arbitrary controllers or optimizers in Java, Matlab or Python to non-real-time grid simulations.
- Compute operating costs of different grid control strategies, such as active power curtailment.
- Create statistics of switching actions, load flows or voltages of a power grid over long time spans.
- Investigate interactions between grid operator and markets over long time spans.
