Transmission Adequacy Consulting
The RTS2 program on this web page is a technological breakthrough.
It allows your transmission improvements to be included with your
resources plan so you can rapidly calculate the peak demand your load
area can serve reliably. You can design many different generation and
transmission plans that all have the same calculated reliability index.

Consulting Info (terms used):
· RTS1 single and RTS2 two area LOLE sequential models have exact indices calculators.
· RTS1 and RTS2 accurately capture variable resources when calculating ATCs and LOLEs.
· I charge only for my time. The RTS programs are free for you to download and use as you wish.
· RTS2.zip expands RTS1 to a two area model bringing transmission constraints into LOLP studies.
· RTS1.zip has all the 1986 and 2016 files plus multi-state generators and auto LOLE capability.
· Here is an example of an ATC analysis for how much solar power can be injected at a bus.
Historical RTS Development:
RTS2016 info describes an LOLE program for evaluating the capacity value of wind, water, and solar.
RTS2016.zip has four UK case studes and all associated files including the program code and executables.
RTS1986.zip runs example cases verifying the new RTS program reproduces 1986 IEEE RTS paper 'exact' indices.
