SHOPLab is a virtual lab for hydropower production scheduling. At its core is the software SHOP, that is developed by Sintef and used in daily operations of most large Nordic hydropower producers. With the lab, it is possible to use this software online, without installing any software.
State of the art: SHOP is the sate-of-the-art tool for hydropower scheduling, and the lab gives virtual access to this tool. It is possible to set up scripts for running the model via a flexible API.
Services currently offered by the infrastructure: The SHOP Lab can be used for all types of analysis of how to operate hydropower. We have also accomplished efforts in order to integrate the hydropower modelling in SHOP with batteries and solar, in order to analyse hybrid systems.
