From electronic chips
to the electric grid
SUGAR™ (Suite of Unified Grid Analyses with Renewables) 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™.
