OPS-X Training is hands-on, simulation based training. As such
it drives home the concepts of economic dispatch, load and generation balance, line loading and voltage control as no other
A fundamental understanding of these concepts will lower system operating
costs in a number of ways and in some cases actually increase revenues.
1. By experiencing surge impedance loading first hand, operators
understand the relationships among line loading, VAR consumption and voltage control. Operators understand how proper
voltage control can lower line loadings thus reducing losses.
2. Proper voltage control also reduces transmission congestion
and leads to a more economic dispatch.
3. Proper voltage control also keeps customer equipment working at its
most effective operating point and maximizes revenues as customer load is a function of voltage or voltage squared.
4. System operators want the most effective training available.
It is the best use of their time. An OPS-X training program will show your system operators that the company values
their time and their dedication. This will increase operator retention and reduce the costs of hiring new staff.
OPS-X training is one of the most effective cost cutting
measures a company can implement.
