Integrated Analysis of Energy Systems

  • Subhes C. Bhattacharyya


This chapter provides an overview of tools and models used to analyse the energy systems in an integrated manner. The chapter refers to the reference energy system and provides a review of various models commonly used for energy system applications. It then touches on energy-economy interactions.
