University of Illinois conducted a Utility Master Plan evaluating the generation and distribution of steam, electricity and chilled water over a 35-year timespan. Resulting strategies are presented along with a utility dispatch model. The model inputs a substantial number of parameters including utility loads, fuel costs, ambient weather conditions, and equipment availability. The program assists plant personnel in operational decisions and utility procurement strategies reducing annual operating cost and emissions.
