GE Energy Consulting Signs Software License Agreement with New York Power Authority
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Building on a long-standing business relationship, GE Energy Consulting
and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) have agreed to a one-year
license arrangement allowing NYPA to use GE's Multi-Area Production
Simulation (MAPS) software. NYPA is expanding its current modeling
capabilities to perform high-fidelity nodal analysis and has chosen GE's
MAPS software as the best tool to satisfy its modeling needs.
As the electric power industry rapidly evolves, one thing has remained
constant-the need to accurately model the economic operation of the
power system in order to make informed decisions. GE's MAPS software
allows users to assess the value of a portfolio of generating units,
identify transmission constraints that negatively impact the economic
operation of the system and to accurately analyze the complex
interaction between the generation and transmission assets on the system.
The MAPS software is part of GE's broader Concorda software suite-that
also includes PSLF* (power systems loadflow) and MARS* software. GE
Energy Consulting develops, commercially licenses and supports these
internationally recognized products that are widely used for planning
and simulating electric power grids, assessing the economic performance
of large electricity markets and evaluating generation reliability.
