For each study, costs can be associated to any modification to the power system model, whether it is the cost resulting from the installation or relocation of an asset or from a load transfer like a phase balancing operation. In addition to the asset cost, economic parameters such as operation and maintenance cost, salvage value and depreciation can be defined and taken into account by the analysis.
The reports creates present load flow results in terms of benefits following reduction in losses and mitigation of abnormal conditions. The economic results include an income statement, a cash flow statement and a capital budget. When used with the CYME Reliability Assessment module, mitigation valuation can be based on improvements of a single reliability index, or a combination of multiple indices.
The Techno-Economic analysis can be performed on a project created using the CYME Advanced Project Manager module. It allows the individual or collective analysis of mitigation projects that are planned for different moments in time. The integration of the two modules brings the analysis to another level by including the technical impacts of concurrent future approved projects, and by allowing a more detailed load growth that combines organic growth, active growth and load transfers.
The technical results are available for a base case (i.e. prior to modifications) and for the study/project where the planned measures are applied, for easy comparison.
