ProdRisk is used for calculation of water values to short-term optimisation models and for risk and investment analysis.
Powel ProdRisk Connector utilize the ProdRisk API to ease and streamline the optimisation process for hydropower producers, designed for automation of ProdRisk runs. The solution is built on state-of-art data management system for flexible, transparent and robust calculations of input data and results including ProdRisk topology structure. This is as a replacement of today's command-line interface and file-based data handling.
Easy and efficient to use
The solution also replaces the need for long-term optimisation using Vansimtap from SINTEF.
"Powel has developed a userfriendly interface which makes ProdRisk easy and efficient to use for our customers," says Beate Sæther, product owner at Powel.
Separate tools are made for efficient converting existing watercourse models and data into Powel data management system. A web-based tool provides an easy and user-friendly interface to set up optimisation cases. This is designed as a step-by-step process for selecting watercourse, connect time series and define case specific ProdRisk settings.
The solution utilizes an intuitive and process-oriented user interface for data analysis and visualization and allows for manual ProdRisk runs. Powel provides efficient maintenance and support for operational use.
