OESYS : a simulation tool for non-conventional energy applications analysis : theoretical and operational description with user documentation
Author(s)Dinwoodie, Thomas L.
A method is developed for assessing both the operational and economic performance of variable mixes of energy conversion technologies within their specific service environments. This method is incorporated into OESYS (Optional Energy Systems Simulator), a computer model with the specific capability to assess conditions of economic viability and service reliability for energy project evaluation. OESYS is especially well suited to handle stochastic (weather-dependent) generation technologies, and will simultaneously handle the generation, transfer, and demand of multiple energy quality levels (electricity, high/low grade thermal, liquid/gaseous fuels, etc.). The model can be applied to most use sectors, including residential, commercial, industrial and institutional, or combinations of use sectors. A model summary description is given on page 13.This paper includes a theoretical description of the types of energy applications handled by OESYS, an operational description of the model, user documentation, and three sample studies.
