​​​Using FORC​E Tools

​FORCE is being developed as ​a flexible platform for analyzing and optimizing various IES configurations in a "plug and play" environment. This platform allows stakeholders to use the toolset to conduct both technical and economic analyses for various electricity market structures as well as giving consideration to markets for other commodities produced by the IES. Results produced using this suite of simulation tools provides input for the experimental system activities and down selection of technology options for nuclear demonstration, conducted in partnership with industry.

Analysis under the System Simulation platform falls into two main pathways of simulation: technoeconomic analysis and transient process modeling.
