National Council on Electricity Policy
Innovations in Electricity Modeling Virtual Training Series
Session #1 – October 1, 2021, 12:00pm to 2:00 pm Eastern
Introduction to Tools to Support Comprehensive Electricity Planning
Tools and Methods for Distribution System Planning with Distributed Energy Resources (DERs)
Juliet Homer and Tom McDermott, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Building on a report for U.S. Department of Energy's grid modernization initiative, this presentation focuses on tools and methods for planning distribution systems with DERs.
Modeling Tool Integration for Comprehensive Electricity Planning
JP Carvallo, Berkeley Lab
This presentation introduces modeling approaches that utilities and utility regulators — as well as other planning entities — can employ for comprehensive assessments of the power system. You'll learn about traditional modeling tools that utilities use for distribution, transmission, and generation planning, as well as models that regional grid operators use. The final segment covers capabilities and uses of comprehensive planning tools.
