R&D challenges
The main challenges are:
  • Generation of input on uncertain variables that represent expected variability in a future system
  • Improvement of methods for comparing results from SHARM and deterministic models, reflecting the structure of decision in operational use
  • Interpretation and presentation of large amounts of output data from the SHARM program
  • Addressing computational issues as very large linear mixed integer programming models have to be solved
  • Address differences between working with SHARM results and deterministic results in the utilities. Quality checks of deterministic results are much easier.
