IRM Model White Papers

A white paper is defined as an authoritative report or guide that informs readers concisely about a complex issue and presents the issuing body’s philosophy or position on the matter.  It is meant to help readers understand an issue, solve a problem or make a decision.  Since the start of the NYSRC, there have been several white papers produced by the Installed Capacity Subcommittee (ICS).  The primary focus of these papers has been to review and enhance modeling elements and input assumptions for the GE Multi-Area Reliability Simulation (MARS) computer program.
