Free Minicourse in Renewable Energy Modeling using @RISK, with example models

How do we insure a reliable energy supply when using renewable energy sources?

Renewable Energy Modeling

Solar power is inherently unreliable, fluctuating with time of day and degree of cloudiness. Wind power is a victim of air flow patterns. To prevent blackouts, renewable energy sources need to be backed up with conventional power sources. In effect, they require virtually 100% backup with fossil, nuclear, hydro sources of power. Think of the repercussions of a solar eclipse and calm winds on renewable energy output, which occurred in Europe in 2015.

In this free on-demand minicourse, Professor Roy Nersesian models the complexities of this problem – and demonstrates solutions – using @RISK for Excel.

Integrating Renewables with Electricity Storage, using @RISK

Materials include:

  • 1-hour webinar delivered by Roy Nersesian
  • Energy example models
  • 50-page whitepaper
  • Presentation slidedeck

Financial Portfolio Models, by Chris Albright

In this video, Chris Albright, one of Palisade’s expert trainers, walks through examining a financial portfolio with @RISK software.  He first explains the basics of an example without uncertainty, and then demonstrates examples with uncertainty involved.  Albright introduces using put options, performing a sensitivity analysis, utilizing Goal Seek and RISKOptimizer, and focusing on correlations within a spreadsheet.

VIDEO: Introduction to the DecisionTools Suite

Do you use @RISK but haven’t explored the other Palisade Tools? It’s time you branched out to explore the DecisionTools Suite, which, in addition to @RISK for Monte Carlo simulation,  includes PrecisionTree for decision trees, and TopRank for “what if” sensitivity analysis. In addition, the DecisionTools Suite comes with StatTools for statistical analysis and forecasting, NeuralTools for predictive neural networks, and Evolver and RISKOptimizer for optimization. All programs work together better than ever before, and all integrate completely with Microsoft Excel for ease of use and maximum flexibility.

To learn more, check out this introduction video to the Suite,  given by Palisade expert trainer Rishi Prabhakar:

The video will give viewers a good understanding of of each of these separate products and how they work together.

 

 

 

VIDEO: Using VBA for Excel and the XDK to Improve the @RISK Experience

This recorded webcast, led by Palisade expert trainer Rishi Prabhakar, explores the use of VBA (the programming language for Excel) to control @RISK functionality to simplify the process of risk analysis for resource-strapped businesses. Rishi  explains the advantages (and limitations) of macro control for modeling and running simulations.  Check out the full webcast below!
