PSIG 2108 - How to use pipeline models to manage nominations and allocations in a constrained and highly dynamic network
This paper investigates the technology and business benefits of a web-based model scheduling application, which integrates a transient model to other business applications that provide injection and demand schedules. The application provides a simple method to input complex scenarios, including compressor, regulator, and routing operations. The paper shows how the system allows non–modelers to use a complex transient model, reducing bad operational decisions which could impact the wholesale natural gas price or supply to end-user customers such as households or businesses. Other operational metrics are discussed.
