Webinar - " India Modeling Spotlight: PRAS"

Please watch the lastest webinar in the India Modeling Spotlight series presented on Tuesday, September 22 at 6:00 p.m. IST, 6:30 a.m. MDT.

As the penetration of variable and energy-limited generation resources are increasing, the reliability of supply is a concern to system operators. Is there enough power available at the right place, at the right time for the power system to serve the load with acceptably low shortfall risk? This is a key question in generation system planning and the purpose behind resource adequacy assessments. 

NREL developed the Probabilistic Resource Adequacy Suite (PRAS) to support this analyses. PRAS simulates outage events on the bulk power system to quantify the risk of unserved load events resulting from shortfalls in the supply or transmission outages. PRAS also has the capability of estimating the contribution of added generation resources to the power system, also known as capacity credit.

PRAS has been used in the North American Renewable Integration Study (NARIS) and several other adequacy-related projects at NREL. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn more about PRAS’s capabilities and its possible applications. Don’t forget to register.
