Subject: Electrcity Generation
Posted: 10/3/2011 Viewed: 1058 times |
I am Sujan from Nepal.I am doing my masters in Technology and Innovation Management.I am developing a leap model of Nepal as a part of my assignment and i am little bit confused about the electricity generation calculation procedure of leap.
There are lot of hydro power plants that Nepal is trying to develop in the future and it has also assigned the date at which they will be built. I want to incorporate them in my model but i am confused about whether to put them in the exogenous capacity or endogenous capacity.
If the leap calculates the extra power plants needed in the future to satisfy the future demand of the model, how can i see it.
Hope to get a prompt and useful reply from you.

This is a good question.
EXOgenous capacity should be used when you know WHAT KIND of power plant you want to build and WHEN
ENDOgenous capacity should be used when you know WHAT KIND of power plant you want to build but not when.
It sounds like, based on your description, that you should be using the exogenous capacity variable for your hydro plants because you know the date when they will be built. You could also use that in conjunction with endogenous capacity if you want. For an example of how to do this, I recommend going through the LEAP General Purpose Training Materials found on the LEAP: Training Materials page here on COMMEND.
