EMPS - multi area power-market simulator
EMPS (EFI's Multi-area Power-market Simulator) is a tool for forecasting and planning in electricity markets. It has been developed for optimization and simulation of hydrothermal power systems with a considerable share of hydro power. It takes into account transmission constraints and hydrological differences between major areas or regional subsystems.
Samnett and Samlast
Samnett and Samlast are two separate programs which are integrated with the EMPS model. In addition to the modelling features in the EMPS model, Samnett and Samlast both perform detailed power flow analysis to compute losses and check for overloads on pre-defined lines or interconnections.
