- This model is useful for multi-year electricity system planning studies, making it possible to analyze, optimize, simulate and develop hydrothermal power system expansion plans.
- The system is divided in the following seven modules, making possible to obtain and analyze an optimum expansion plan:
- Control Module
- Demand Module
- Hydrological Module
- Planning under Uncertainty Module
- Hydro-thermal Module
- Financial Module
- Environmental Module
- The system considers parameters such as hydro risks, reservoir features, demand growth and hourly characteristics, fuel costs, among others.
The system establishes expansion options for power system generation and transmission in the medium and long term.
The system provides criteria for decision-making when developing projects and referential and ruling policies.
SUPER can be used by Ministries of Energy, Universities, Companies and Public and Private Institutions, responsible for electricity system planning.
