Seminar “Electricity System Modeling”

The training seminar “Electricity system modeling” offers a compressed introduction to the numerical modeling of power markets and systems in Excel and GAMS. During the seminar, participants will construct their own models, which is not only helpful to gain insights, but also to communicate model results to outsiders. This course targets beginners in modeling as well as readers of modeling studies who would like to understand what is going on inside the black box.

Next date: 27-29 May 2019


The seminar takes place over three consecutive days. It is possible to only attend the first or the first two days as well.
