Beginner training session



Antares-Simulator is an open-source power system simulator meant to be used by anybody placing value in quantifying the adequacy or the economic performance of interconnected energy systems, at short or remote time horizons. With an adequate modelling of the energy consumption, generation and transportation, the software performs probabilistic simulations of the system throughout many year-long scenarios made of 8760 hourly time-frames each.

The massive development of intermittent renewable energies, the multiplication of local experiments related to smart-grids, the assessment of the potentialities offered by storage technologies (batteries, power-to-gas) are typical examples of strategic issues whose analysis require the assistance of a software application such as Antares-Simulator.

Topics of the training

The Antares Beginner training is a 3 days session at our office in Paris, France where you will learn about:

  • The challenges of system adequacy forecasting
  • The organization of the interface and how to navigate easily into
  • The main principles of modelling a system with Antares with a market approach
  • The different options of simulation and their impact on the results
  • How to fulfil Load, Solar and Wind time-series
  • How to use the different Hydro models and understand their differences
  • How to successfully describe a thermal fleet from technical and economical points of views
  • How to model a Hydro Pump Storage and a Battery
  • How to understand the results
  • Presentation of the R packages

Half of the training session is devoted to practical work. At the end of the training, the objective is that the participants will be able to create their own study from scratch.

Intended Audience

This training is intended for new or inexperienced users of the tool who need to reinforce their basic skills on the tool
