NISC’s Distributed Engineering Workstation software (DEW) was featured in a paper in Energies, an open access journal of scientific research, technology development, engineering policy and management covering energy supply, conversion, dispatch and final use.

The paper, primarily authored by National Renewable Energy Laboratory personnel and coauthored by NISC Senior Product Line Manager Robert Broadwater, focuses on the benefits of differing technologies in analyzing today’s complex energy grid, from generation to the end consumer. The paper’s authors compared different ways to analyze the complex grid using various tools currently available in the industry and from the U.S. Department of Energy. One tool considered was the DEW approach of an Integrated Systems Model.

The authors conclude that the technologies leveraged within the DEW architecture produces the most accurate results and, as demonstrated by examples, calculates the results quicker.
