Better understanding of Distributed
Energy Resources with CYMETM


From the traditional diesel generators to the new low-carbon energy producers, Distributed Energy Resources (DER) have changed tremendously the perspective of power utilities. The need to manage the interconnection appropriately, to understand the technical issues and to prepare the network to meet the challenge of tomorrow can be satisfied with the use of the CYME? Power System Analysis software. With its robust analytical and modeling capabilities, the CYME suite of applications is a powerful tool to help engineers study different issues coming from small-scale embedded generation and large distributed generation sources.
