Security-Constrained Unit Commitment (SCUC)
You can save millions of dollars in fuel costs simply by scheduling future generation more accurately.
Problem: Utilities and grid operators face a growing number of variable challenges in delivering electricity to customers as efficiently and economically as possible.
Solution: SCUC software optimizes the commitment and dispatch of generation in order to maintain grid reliability at the lowest possible cost.
Return on Investment: With Siemens' solution, utilities have seen a full payback of the SCUC software solution within a matter of weeks. Read our SCUC case study.
Siemens Spectrum Power™ SCUC solves a suite of optimization challenges for operational cost savings while taking into account grid reliability. It uses a sophisticated set of algorithms to determine the when and how to run the most economical generators at various points during the day, based on anticipated demand. The same programs will examine the physical constraints on the grid and send electricity across the most efficient pathways so consumers can keep their lights on.
