Neighborhood concepts

Universal model quarter generation
Model type Optimization model (mixed integer approach) that minimizes the total cost of a generation fleet.
Model approach Use of the components RPS (Resources Planning System) of the energy management software EMS-EDM PROPHET ®. Mapping of the mathematical formulation in GAMS, description of the individual energy generation plants (conventional and renewable) and storage as a component of the overall system based on economic and technical parameters. Application for arbitrary neighborhood sizes
Model Target Calculation of the optimal composition of generation equipment (capacity to be installed) to cover the electricity and heat demand of quarters, determination of parameters of the generation park (including purchase costs, CO2 emissions, self-supply quota)
Target group Grid operators, neighborhood operators, housing cooperatives, energy service providers
