View the chart that illustrates PLEXOS' emerging strength against SDDP storage trends
The chart compares SDDP storage trajectory (orange line) vs the newly created PLEXOS stochastic methodology with Rolling Horizon evaluation of the Scenario Tree (blue line).
The SDDP version requires forward and backward recursion and addition of cuts. But now PLEXOS solves in six forward iterations only in as little as 10 seconds with 205 scenarios. PLEXOS also incorporates integer decisions ideal for optimal long term expansion decisions, non-physical losses, and non-convex objective function elements.
