Modeling ramp rate restrictions  


Can Homer model ramp rate restrictions of various energy sources and storage technologies? If this capability isn't built directly into the existing models, is it possible to create this functionality through the custom Matlab scripts?


Hi Chris,


HOMER by itself doesn't model ramp rate restrictions. You can use custom Matlab dispatch strategy where you can define your own ramp rate restrictions to your model thus controlling the dispatch of energy sources/storage. Hope this helps.
