Colombia power system flexibility assessment: IRENA FlexTool case study

Emanuele Taibi, Carlos Fernandez, Laura Gutierrez, Juha Kiviluoma, Tomi J. Lindroos

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    This analysis provided insights into the flexibility of the planned power system, as well as indicators that could be suitable to assess this flexibility. Additionally, given the increase in nodal granularity requested, analysis of the transmission between areas could provide a more detailed overview of the system’s flexibility.
    Based on the results of this analysis, UPME plans to add a chapter on power system flexibility to the next national power expansion plan, looking at the period 2018-2032. The new chapter will add results from this flexibility analysis and explore other scenarios, such as one considering the potential 2.4 GW Ituango hydropower plant, or one considering higher granularity of nodes to capture possible transmission constraints within specific areas.
