Development of an Integrated DSS for optimal power production and enterprise strategy.

abstract In cooperation with an Austrian engineering and consulting company, an Integrated Decision Support System for the optimal power production and efficient enterprise strategie has been developed and implemented. The client, a major hydro power producer in Central America, was faced with demanding challenges in the course of a growing market liberalization. By the means of the DSS developed, the client has been placed in a position to act successfully in a situation of growing uncertainties (system load, spot market prices) and a fierce oligilopistic competition. The design of adequate electricity contracts and a fair pricing scheme in the coalescing regional market in Central America is only one of the ongoing tasks.
