ENCOMPASS POWER PLANNING SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS

One robust system for power planning and forecasting

Intuitive and flexible software system with a multitude of applications for power planning

DESIGNED FOR THE ANALYST

EnCompass uses an advanced optimization algorithm that enables analysts to efficiently evaluate decisions around scheduling, risk management, and capital projects.

EnCompass uses an advanced optimization algorithm that enables analysts to efficiently evaluate decisions around scheduling, risk management, and capital projects.

SCHEDULING

Users have the capability to perform a full optimization of all resources within a market or utility control center enforcing transmission limits and a complete set of operating costs and real world constraints.

UNCERTAINTY & RISK

Advanced risk modeling can be applied to any time series value, including but not limited to commodity prices, interest rates, production costs, demand, and renewable generation.

LONGTERM OPTIMIZATION

EnCompass users are provided numerous options that allow to simplification of the detailed commitment and dispatch problem needed to perform simulations with reasonable runtime.

CAPITAL PROJECTS

EnCompass helps analysts determine the best way to utilize resources, including which technologies to add in the future or existing resources should be converted or retired.

COMPLIANCE

EnCompass offers the most complete set of functions for modeling complex environmental programs, such as stringent carbon limits and overlapping renewable portfolio standards.

MARKET PRICES

As part of a standard simulation, EnCompass power planning software will calculate the marginal cost (shadow price) of meeting energy and ancillary service requirements.

TRANSMISSION ANALYSIS

Includes all of the necessary transmission detail to effectively combine generation and transmission planning, and evaluation of portfolios in nodal markets.

REPORTING

EnCompass was designed with the analyst in mind, making data setup and reporting simple and intuitive. Import and export data to Excel spreadsheets in a straight-forward, easy-to-read format.

STREAMLINE PROCESSES

EnCompass internal logic expands or contracts depending on the user settings for different types of studies. That means there is a single database to manage that supplies data for short-term, long-term, detailed production costing, zonal transmission, nodal transmission, reliability, capacity planning, and stochastic analysis type studies. EnCompass minimizes the need to move between different models – a process likely to introduce data errors and inconsistency in study assumptions.

DEPLOYMENT AND LICENSING

ENCOMPASS CAN BE DEPLOYED IN TWO DIFFERENT MODES 

Either mode may use physical computers, virtual machines, or resources in the cloud using technologies like Amazon Workspaces or Azure Virtual Machines.
