Research and development on the integrated and optimal management of natural gas transmission infrastructures.
Development of GANESO software, an IT tool that allow clients to interactively obtain optimal distribution of the gas flow based on different criteria, tariff calculation, simulation in transient conditions, and network expansion planning under uncertainty.
In order to optimize the gas transport network, a two stage procedure has been developed:
GANESO allows to study the use of current infrastructures, optimize them and assess the investment in future infrastructures, enabling, in this sense, users to make decisions regarding management and expansion of gas transportation networks.
The software helps when making strategic decisions for the company, which reduces costs. In addition, it is competitive with existing commercial tools since it presents a great advantage for the company: control over future developments, tariff calculations and can incorporate new features on demand.
