Modelling Distribution Level Electricity System
Dear All,
I am thinking to model the electricity system at the distribution Level in TIMES to understand the impact of Solar PV and Electric Vehicles on the distribution segments. Therefore, I would like to know the following:
- Is it possible to model different distribution voltage levels in AnswerTIMES
- What all documents I need to refer that can help me to model this in AnswerTIMES
- Presently, I am using the AnswerTIMES version 6.9.18 so what all features might be used for that?
- Anyone having any old sample model wherein distribution segment is modelled that I may refer to?
Looking forward for your valuable response.

TIMES models can well include different electricity distribution voltage levels, at least insofar as any non-linear effects can be ignored. As an example, see The JRC-EU-TIMES model documentation:


Page 129: Energy storage
Page 157: Energy trade within EU28
Pages 162–163: National electricity grids

No special features of TIMES are needed for such a simplified representation.
For an example RES structure, see page 4 in the following presentation:
Least Cost Optimisation Modelling of the 2020 Energy and Environmental targets in EU27
