Power Regulation
Computation of Hydro Capacity
The Hydro Capacity slot was previous being computed/linearized as Maximum Turbine Release times the Power Plant Capacity Fraction. This flow value is now converted to power using the Flow Power Table. This is done for both simulation and optimization. Also, optimization now calculates the Hydro Capacity at the beginning of the run. This removes the need to linearize Hydro Capacity and it is now a SeriesSlot instead of a AggSeriesSlot. Note that Hydro Capacity is now only available and computed if a power method is selected.
Behavior Prior to Beginning of Run
Referencing variables prior to Beginning of Run
Prior to this release, a small number of optimization variables could not reference values before beginning of run. This has been corrected.
