Hello, I am new in the forum and in the EnergyPLAN community.
As part of a study I am performing simulations of an energy system that contains a pumped hydro power plant. Although I insert the values in the storage field when I prompt for results it appears that sometimes the storage is zero which is not what is intended. The upper and lower reservoirs would always have some water to produce power.
I think this is what happens:
When you specify a certain storage capacity (X) in the inputfile, you basically give EnergyPLAN the freedom to use 0 to X storage capacity. Therefore, situations can occur where the system chooses not to use the capacity.
In the output sheet, if the program used hydro pumping I should be able to see under the Hydro Pump field correct?
When I run my program, which is based on a country electricity system which consumed 1.24 GWh of pumping energy per year, the result is 0 throughout the whole year… This means it is not using pumping right? Any idea why?
