    Modeling Features

    BatterySIMM and SmartBidder offer superior modeling of market price dynamics, and operational constraints, providing comprehensive resource valuation and optimal operation strategy.

    BatterySIMM provides revenue streams of energy and ancillary services under multiple trading strategies. Project developers, and utilities, will benefit from the accurate market dynamics combined with physical operations of storage.

    BatterySIMM and SmartBidder pair an in depth representation of storage with forecasting of market prices, including predictions of price spikes and trends in volatility. This allows the mixed-integer linear program to optimize dispatch between energy ancillaries for day-ahead and real-time markets.

    SmartBidder determines optimal ISO bid strategies for both day-ahead and real-time activities. Through combining probabilistic forecasting of market conditions with stochastic optimization, SmartBidder continuously maximizes market opportunities. SmartBidder connects directly to your battery EMS/BMS to receive data and manage state of charge by continuously adjusting offers for profit maximization. Ascend believes it’s unique combination of forecasting and optimization maximizes profitability beyond any other solution of man or machine.
