• ERCOT Deploys NewGrid Router to Support Operations Planning

    November 17 - Today, NewGrid CEO Dr. Pablo Ruiz discussed the use of topology optimization in support of ERCOT operations planning at the ERCOT DSWG meeting. ERCOT manages the flow of electricity to 24 million Texas customers – representing 90 percent of the state’s electric load. NewGrid Router is the first transmission topology optimization software package. The use of NewGrid Router during the annual ERCOT Constraint Management Plan review enabled the development of plans that improve grid reliability under outage events and streamlined the verification of previous plans.

Unlock the Potential of Your Grid

NewGrid topology optimization software automatically identifies grid reconfigurations to route power around congested transmission facilities.

NewGrid software supports power operations, operations planning, and markets decision making, and enables improved grid operations:

  • Increase transfer capacity of the grid by 5-10%
  • Reduce grid congestion costs by 30-50%
  • Relieve transmission facility overloads
  • Streamline the development of contingency plans
  • Facilitate outage planning and coordination
  • Position the grid to meet forecast conditions

NewGrid topology optimization increases grid reliability and resilience. When outages and extreme events occur, NewGrid software enables operators to:

  • Adapt grid configuration to system conditions
  • Prevent or minimize customer disconnections
  • Expedite grid recovery
