Library documentation

Introduction

In Artelys Crystal Super Grid, the library word refers to the list of all existing energy assets available, and by extension to the overall Artelys Crystal Super Grid modelling. Hereafter is explained the terminology associated with the library:

  • The scopes
  • The behaviors
  • The assets

Scopes

  • SIMULATION : This is the reference scope for Artelys Crystal Super Grid, and can be used for all power and gas models.
  • OPTIMCAPA : This scope enables capacity optimization on production or transmission assets

Behaviors

Artelys Crystal Super Grid includes modelling options (or "behaviors") that can be activated or disabled depending on the purpose of the study and the level of detail wanted. These behaviors allow to perform more or less detailed simulations with the same model. These behaviors can be available on one or several technologies depending on the model they activate. Behaviors are activated asset by asset and scope by scope. They can be combined, but some specific combinations are considered inconsistent and won't be accepted. When there are activated, some specific parameters are added to the corresponding asset.

Asset types

Assets are the main components of Artelys Crystal Super Grid models, and have a wide range of use. For instance, an asset can represent a single plant, a whole fleet of units, a coal supply or the electricity demand of a given zone. Then, an asset can be seen as an object with specific constraints, that can exchange energy with other assets.

Some specific assets, called Model Object, do not represent real elements, but are used as a way to set additional constraints to the system with appropriate parameters. They are for instance used to define how is performed the electricity reserve sizing at a regional level.

Each asset type has a list of parameters that represent their main characteristics. Their values are used in the Code section of the asset, which defines how the asset behaves during the simulation. Most of the constraints set for each asset are defined in an API, common for all assets.
