Antoni Trías Bonet, the co-founder of Grupo AIA, has been granted the U.S. patent AGORA. AGORA is a new-generation Grid Management System (GMS) with intelligent observation features, built on a non-iterative breakthrough patented innovation load flow algorithm, HELM, that always provides the correct solution (if an operational physical solution exists), even near voltage collapse. The result is a robust set of tools to keep the network state even under the most difficult operational conditions.
Antoni Trías explains in an interview how the new HELM system provides all power flow calculations and accurate real-time PV and QV curve generation, performs reliable contingency analysis and support simulation in real-time.
