Generation and Transmission Maximization Model
From Open Energy Information
The Generation and Transmission Maximization Model (GTMax) is a software tool for energy analysis from Argonne National Laboratory. GTMax is used extensively by power companies, electric utilities, system operators, and merchant companies around the world to address strategic issues, such as regional interconnections, power market studies, market entry analysis, developing optimal spot market and contract portfolios, economic evaluation of renewable resources, etc. With its detailed representation of the power generation and transmission system (hourly simulation, DC optimal power flow, and detailed hydro and renewable resources), the model tracks hourly costs, revenues, and profits for each generating unit.
