Power generation continues to evolve into increasingly coupled systems of electrical and economic dynamics. To optimize power generation performance, engineers and scientists use MATLAB® and Simulink® products to:
Managing energy production assets reliably and profitably depends on accurately analyzing the utility of assets and responding quickly to deviations that might affect performance and reliability.
With MATLAB, engineers can analyze the large volumes of data collected by energy production equipment for online/offline decisions and supervisory control actions:
Modeling and simulating transmission and distribution systems is critical to understanding the behavior of the grid under various operating conditions and contingencies. The growing penetration of renewable energy sources at the transmission level, coupled with recent innovations with distribution system management and operation, increases the need to perform detailed studies to accurately capture the dynamic response of the grid. With this information, operators and planners can mitigate undesirable conditions and ensure reliable and efficient operation of the grid.
