Further development of the energy generation and CBA model of the Gabcikovo-Nagymaros Dam and Barrage System (2002)

The Danube Commissioner’s Office contracted MAKK to further develop and modify the energy generation model, which was originally developed by MAKK in 1999. The model is capable of simulating energy production scenarios of the Barrage System. In the new model version it is possible to model more detailed and better defined scenarios, than in the earlier version, e.g. as the ecological requirements within the wetland area vary through the year, the functions calculating the quantity of water diverted into the Szigetköz can now be defined for every month of the year. Likewise, we increased the range of those characteristics with which the electricity market can be described. By making use the newest experience and research results we forecasted the likely development of the electricity market and estimated the future base and peak load prices. Furthermore, we have improved some of the engineering features of the model, and made the model more user friendly.
