Models are used for simulating power systems behaviors. These models are essential for both planning and operating functions. Simulation results are only as good as the underlying power systems models. In other words, simulation results are worthless if the models used do not accurately represent clients network. As part of our due diligence process, SAGEPS experts systematically review base cases, raw data, and all models provided by clients for accuracy and completeness; this is called model validation.

Whatever the simulation tools your organization uses, SAGEPS experts can help develop and maintain an accurate set of power systems models to be used for various type of activities including, but not limited to:

♦ Power Flow Analyses

♦ Voltage Stability Studies

♦ Transient Stability Studies

♦ Motor Starting Studies

♦ Protection Devices Coordination Studies

♦ Power Factor Studies

♦ Harmonics Studies

♦ Switching Studies

♦ Power Transfer Capability Studies

♦ Insulation Coordination Studies

♦ Short Circuit calculations

♦ Electromagnetic Transient Analyses (EMTP, EMTDC)

Flexible AC Transmission Systems | SAGEPS Consulting

Additional benefits of FACTS devices include increased transmission capacity, improved grid stability, enhanced network efficiency, reduced environmental impact, and increased damping of oscillations and sub-synchronous resonances. SAGEPS expertise on these topics gives our clients the confidence that their challenges will be addressed with cost-effective, efficient and state of the art solutions.


System Impact Studies | SAGEPS Consulting

First-cut feasibility studies based solely on power flow studies are contemplated, and then more in-depth studies including transient stabilities studies, power quality studies, and short circuit analyses are performed. The ultimate goal of this evaluation is to look for possible violations of reliability and performance criteria caused by the addition of the new facility.


System Analysis | SAGEPS Consulting

Growing electricity demand coupled with aging infrastructures, lack of adequate system reinforcements, poor asset management strategies, and insufficient power generation facilities are just few factors that are creating unexpected stresses to many networks, as these transmission systems are no longer capable of handling capacity increases.
