... Opening the case... Select existing case from database or press New
Drag and drop component library Drag and drop component library Energy system drawing Operation and investment analysis Pan & Zoom window
1. Set Timesteps... 1-3 days (24-72 timesteps) per segment are recommended for operational analysis
Any number of Segments (seasons) may be specified by clicking New. The sum of Weight over all Segments must equal one year (365 when Timestep is set as 24 hours) The load and price profiles given for each component is multiplied with the Coefficient for the respective Segment 2. Set Segments...
3. Set Years... The Years parameter defines the Investment periods in the case. They do NOT have to be of equal length. The load and price profiles given for each component is multiplied with the Coefficient for each Year
... Case layout... Electricity and heat loads Electric peak load boiler Electricity spot market Utility buy-back market Electricity grid District heating grid CHP alt. 1: Gas fired CHP CHP alt. 2: Low quality waste fired CHP CHP alt. 3: High quality wood waste fired CHP
... Heat load... Data used by Investment analysis; included in all components When no parameters are given, this component is valid in all Segments, Years and Investment alternatives Technology specific data used by Operational analysis
... El source... These tables are always displayed as a function of the Timesteps setting (here: 24)
... El market... The El market is an option to sell electricity at a given price (constant or variable). Can also represent a Load.
... Power line... eTransport uses DC Power Flow to calculate the electricity network flows. Any number of lines and cables may be specified.
... Boiler... The boiler is defined as a separate Investment alternative
... Investment setup......or Investment Parameters from any component Select Edit Investments from the Data menu...
... Run investment analysis... Combination & timing of investments: Red=Not allowed Green=Allowed Yellow=Mandatory combinations -> NB: The combination matrix must be evaluated horizontally The report from the AMPL solver can be inspected e.g. to search for deficit penalties or errors
Choose variables to display Investment alternatives list; Click to highlight components on drawing screen... View results: Investments...
4 types of emissions calculated for all alternatives Choose variables to display Ranked list of investment alternatives Tree structure shows the components included in each investment alternative
Operational analysis for Rank 1 (CHP 2 + Boiler)...for Period 2010-2015... Select variables... View results: Operation... Selected components highlighted on screen - the user can scroll through any combination of Rank, Period and Segment
