Objects and Methods
This object models the economics of power generation.
One methods evaluates hydro generation by directly replacing power generated by thermal power plants, such as nuclear, coal, or gas powered plants, and examines the economic savings at the thermal plants. This is the origin of the thermal name for this object.
Another method places a piecewise linear or block value on hydropower generation. Typically, the user calculates these block values based on replaced thermal generation or power purchase opportunities, but the source doesn’t matter for the RiverWare model.
A third method places a linear value on hydropower generation.
