ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, will present on 1 February 2019 the key results of the study « Trajectoires d’évolution du mix électrique 2020-2060 » during an event gathering around 100 French experts and stakeholders. This study, undertaken by Artelys, presents seven contrasted evolutions of the French electricity mix, interconnected with neighbouring electricity systems. The electricity mixes are obtained by carrying out an economic optimisation of the trajectory of investments using Artelys Crystal Super Grid. This tool jointly optimises the evolution of the installed capacities between 2020 and 2060, and the detailed operational management of the European power system (hourly time-steps for seven climatic years). Using this approach allows us to carefully assess the costs associated with the variability of solar and wind power.
This study is a first at the European level due to the size and the level of detail of the model (520 million optimisation variables, 670 million constraints). Artelys has relied on the use of high performance computing infrastructure and on innovative decomposition techniques, developed during the POST project, which was supported by ADEME.
— In association with the French Energy Poverty Observatory (ONPE), Artelys has developed GEODIP, a tool including various cartographic representations of energy poverty in France. GEODIP is already available free of charge for local stakeholders.
The MIT Biomimetic Robotics Lab uses Artelys Knitro to achieve High speed landing of quadruped robots
— There are various and fascinating projects adopting Artelys Knitro. Recently, the MIT Biomimetic Robotics Lab used our nonlinear solver on quadruped robots. Artelys Knitro has been found to be the only non-linear solver capable of performing fast enough to be deployed onboard their robot for a real-time Optimal Landing Control.
