ICC has developed software particularly for technical, commercial and financial planning and operation of power and water/sanitation utilities. Special versions of this software was adapted for regulating agencies verify the quality of operator performance. By using our models, we have a proven track-record of helping companies successfully deal with operating problems.
- FINEVAL, for optimizing technical, financial and commercial operation and management of electricity utilities, including the proposal of sustainable retail prices and subsidies needed for low-income customers;
- DEMPRO, for calculating energy and electricity demand projections using econometric and probabilistic approaches;
SHS, for improving the quality of hydrological observed data and generating synthetic hydro inflow series by using stochastic multivariate algorithms;
LCEP, to determine least-cost expansion plans for electric interconnected systems and urban and rural distribution networks, using mathematic programming models;
PFIRM, for finding the best development of regional hydro resources and optimizing multipurpose reservoirs performance and hydro plant operation using dynamic regressive programming techniques;
DSP, for simulating load dispatching of multinodal networks including conventional generating units, non-conventional renewable energy plants, ecological constraints and transmission/distribution facilities; and
ENERPLAN, to optimize energy production from several type of sources and meet energy demands of comsumption centers by using a mixed LP model (combination of integer and continuous decision variables).
Water and Sanitation Models
- DEMPRO, for calculating water and wastewater services demand projections using econometric and probabilistic approaches;
- WATERPLAN, for establishing least-cost expansion plans and investment projections;
- FINEVAL, for optimizing technical, financial and commercial operation and management of water utilities, including the proposal of sustainable tariffs and subsidies needed for low-income customers; and
- LOSSES, for determining optimal levels of technical and commercial losses using a cost/benefit approach.
Design/implementation of information and telemetry networks for operation and maintenance activities; and for environmental licensing of electricity and water utilities (Internet technology).
Mapping of electricity, water/sanitation systems and energy and water resources, using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology.
