The unprecedented convergence robustness of SUGAR™ makes it the ideal tool for the most challenging transmission planning problems.


SUGAR™ draws inspiration from the design, simulation, and optimization tools from the computer chip industry. By leveraging powerful circuit simulation methods developed to study billion-transistor electronic systems, SUGAR™ offers industry-leading convergence robustness for power grid analysis.

The foundational technology behind SUGAR™ was originally developed at Carnegie Mellon University and has been published extensively in peer-reviewed conferences and journals. These publications offer a deep dive into the formulation, models, and algorithms used in SUGAR™.
