The unprecedented convergence robustness of SUGAR™ makes it the ideal tool for the most challenging transmission planning problems.
Optimize the grid for reliability, energy-efficiency, and cost with a flexible optimization engine.
SUGAR™ solves a variety of grid expansion and planning problems
using a state-of-the-art nonlinear optimization framework. Optimally
place new infrastructure, minimize system losses, and calculate
generator set-points for lowest cost while ensuring N-1 security.
Ex.: Volt/VAR optimization indicated the optimal placement of a capacitor bank to guarantee N-1 security in a 70k+ bus case representing the U.S. transmission system.
