Sketch of Renewable Energy Production Simulation Platform


Renewable Energy Production Simulation Platform (REPS) is developed by China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI) to simulate the operation of renewable energy in the power system. REPS takes into account the characteristics of China’s electric power system, it can assess the accommodation of renewable energy power and simulate the impact of different renewable energy capacity on the operation of power system. Assessment model and calculation process of REPS V1.3 is introduced in this article, and annual consumptive capacity in one provincial power grid of China is evaluated with the platform. REPS is of great guiding significance to electrical source planning. With the sustained and rapid growth of renewable energy in China, power system will be more and more dependent on REPS.
