OSA Consulting Services

Operation Simulation Associates provides consulting services to the electric power industry, regulatory authorities, and other interest groups. Our expertise includes the following:

  • Power System planning studies.

  • Integrated Resource planning studies (IRP).

  • Power System operation studies.

  • Evaluation of complicated power options such as pumped hydro, combined heat and power, multi-mode combined cycle, solar, and wind.

  • Wind integration studies.

  • Grid evaluations.

  • Supporting the use of the PowrSym model and adapting it for special situations.

In most engagements the role of OSA is to either support the use of PowrSym products or perform model runs as a service for our clients. In this role OSA is "crunching the numbers" in support of our client who has the lead role in the project.
