NewGrid Presents on Topology Optimization at ERCOT Emerging Technologies Working Group Meeting

Dr. Pablo Ruiz, CEO and CTO of NewGrid, discussed applications of transmission topology optimization software in power operations and markets at the ERCOT Emerging Technologies Working Group Meeting, on December 5th, 2016. The presentation included topology optimization case studies based on peak load ERCOT models used as part of the ERCOT Congestion Management Plan (CMP) study. The case studies indicate the potential of topology optimization to increase by over 20% the effective transmission capacity in one of the most heavily congested areas in ERCOT in recent years.
