Multi-energy planning of interconnected systems

Energy systems are rapidly getting more and more complex with the increasing integration of intermittent energy sources and energy markets coupling together on a large scale.

Our web-based Artelys Crystal Super Grid platform enables you to assess the costs and benefits of infrastructure projects, the impacts of proposed actions, and optimize investments in generation assets, grids and flexibility solutions. Combined with the most advanced quantitative tools, our interface enhances collaboration and information sharing.

Artelys Crystal Super Grid is the underlying tool for the European Commission’s METIS multi-energy model.

key features

— A ready-to-use modelling tool

No installation required, you only need a web browser to access and use Artelys Crystal Super Grid. Cloud computing allows you to perform your calculations directly from the web interface. Should you need more computing power, you can request extra on-demand computing power.

 

A library of state-of-the-art models resulting from our numerous customer experiences: electricity generation technologies, gas and heat assets, long-term contracts, flexibilities, coupling beetwen energy carriers, etc.

 

A fast-track initialization phase is ensured by the provision of simulation-ready datasets.

Contact us to more details about available datasets.

 

Multi-model management: the software allows for multiple models to coexist and to adapt seamlessly.

— Transparency

Collaborative work is at the core of our solution: datasets, scenarios and results are shared seamlessly within your team.

 

An exhaustive documentation of the models allows the users to find the precise definition of all parameters and to access the equations that bind them.

 

All parameters can be modified easily via the interface or via the import format.

— Multi-scenarios optimization of large systems

The systems modelled can be zonal or nodal and cover multiple energy carriers (electricity, gas, heat, hydrogen, etc.).

 

A large number of scenarios can be simulated in parallel, e.g. to assess the impacts of different climatic conditions.

 

Simulation: activation of flexibilities to reach the economic optimum while respecting the supply-demand balance, reserve requirements, and other techno-economic constraints.

 

Capacity expansion planning: finding the optimal investments taking into account operational and financial constraints.

 

Unit Commitment: optimize the operations of generation units with an increased level of accuracy.

— Intuitive user interface

The model and its parameters are always accessible through the graphical user interface.

 

An extensive library of KPIs is provided: generation mix, activation of flexibilities, CO2 emissions, market price statistics, generators’ revenus, etc.

 

KPIs can be configured and shared within your team.

 

Complete a study in just a few clicks: edit the value of a parameter, launch the simulation, and assess the impacts via our scenario comparison mode.

— Support

A one-day training by our experienced instructors is enough to get you ready. Advanced training sessions are offered for our on-demand features.

 

Our support team is available to answer your questions. We also offer an expert modelling support service where our experts will assist you in setting up customized models.

 

Our customers are our priority: we take into account your feedback to integrate new features into our roadmap.
