Brazil is the only developing country to have its own chain of computational models focused on the simulation of electrical networks, developed as the Brazilian electrical system evolved. Thus, as soon as a new type of equipment was launched, connected to the network, new developments appeared for its modeling in the programs.
The NH2 provides several studies and off-line analysis by the main sectoral entities, such as the National Electric System Operator (ONS) and the Energy Research Company (EPE); by the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and also by the transmission and generation agents, especially Eletrobras.
One of the main goals of this line is to permanently update the NH2 program, keeping it ready for use and compatible with other electrical analysis programs. It also aims to raise awareness among the various agents in the electricity sector of the importance of using probabilistic criteria in studies and contingency analyzes.
This research line is implemented in partnership with Eletrobras companies; with sector entities, such as ONS and EPE; with the MME; with institutions and universities, such as the Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute for Graduate Studies and Engineering Research at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (COPPE / UFRJ), the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-RJ) and the Federal University of Juiz de Fora (UFJF).
The "Reliability" line is related to the "Transmission Systems Expansion Planning" research line, since it is believed that the planning of the new installations should contemplate aspects related to the reliability of the networks. Another line of research related to it is the "Planning, Operation and Analysis of Electrical Networks".
