Integ Consulting has partnered with various O&M providers, as well as other energy service providers to help implement enterprise generation management systems. We provide a variety of applications tailored for managing generating assets, which all work together in concert to greatly simplify operational processes and vastly improve data quality. We then provide powerful machine learning and analytic technology to give tremendous insight into your operations, and give you tools tailored just for you that help you communicate your value add to clients.
PowerSuite for Energy Services is typically broken down into two key operational areas:
Outage Management Systems
Do so much more than just report NERC GADS. Plan your outages through an automated approval system, submit outages tickets to any ISO, and then use incredible after the fact analytics to see how much your outages cost you and help you figure out how you are going to do next year. Let us show you why this is our bestselling product line, with key features just for organizations like you.
Bid Management and Costing
PowerSuite offers a set of easy to use applications to help utilities manage complex unit costing parameters, integrate market data, and come up with rigorously refined proposed bid spreads for up to 1000 units in the blink of an eye. Our systems use hundreds of data points on an hourly level (or in some cases, subhourly) and provide so much more efficiency and accuracy than spreadsheets could ever hope to do.
Looking for something specific? We have just the tool you want.
Take a look below for details on each of our products.
Margin Analyzer examines the relationship between actual margin and lost margin due to outages and derates. By examining the heat curves, the incremental cost curves, and the hourly LMP or system Lambda tied to each specific unit, the system shows the true economic impact of each outage or derate. Margin Analyzer shows how much margin the unit could have made by simulating a generation pattern if the event was avoided.
ISO Market Bidding and Data Validation
PowerBroker provides complete multi-source data validation and storage for the many performance and economic factors that inform profitable bidding offers. A web-enabled bidirectional XML interface to the market ISO is established for the transmission and reception of all regulatory postings as well as bid submissions and responses, including generation offers and demand / increment / decrement bids. PowerBROKER is a multi-tier, J2EE-based web application that incorporates the web browser as the application client, requiring no client-side installation.
Meter Data Management or Settlement Packages
PowerTRACKER provides a complete set of tools to manage all the financial transactions between the market participant and the RTO. These tools include financial accounting checkout, invoice creation and tracking facilities, meter data verification, invoice dispute management and ISO bill verification. Standard and custom reports are available for analysis and company-wide distributuion of settlement and billing information.
Real-Time Communications and Approval Tool
PowerManager is a real-time command, control and communication system between the generation plants and central operations center. It manages all the plant-related outage events and activities, dispatch instructions, event logs, capabilities and reporting into one solution.
Real-Time Profit & Loss and Operational Performance
PowerP&L is designed to deliver vital operational and financial information continuously from the day-ahead perspective to the final ISO-settlement perspective. Updated as frequently as every five minutes, the data include day-ahead and real-time LMP, energy and ancillary service revenues, costs and margins. Estimated Operating reserves and credits are also calculated. In addition the system can calculate lost opportunity revenues with a default logic that can be modified. All of the financial data analysis using known and forecast market data, internal data, and costs is rolled up along with the shadow Profit and Loss and presented real-time. The tool also provides lost profit analysis for each hour due to various reasons such as inability to follow dispatch, outages, etc.
In addition to our product offerings, Integ provides a vast array of unparalleled services to meet your needs. Our consulting services potently combine the latest technologies and methodologies with in-depth energy business expertise. The result is a broad range of competencies covering all aspects of the full development life cycle, which are completely aligned with our clients' organizational strategies.

Generation and Ancillary Service Planning Tool
PowerSym is a tool for forecasting short-term and intermediate-term outcomes for electric generation wholesale suppliers. The forecast period can range from next hour to three months or longer. PowerSym uses a set of forecast hourly market-clearing prices to predict these outcomes with a high degree of accuracy. Each generation resource is to be modeled along with all relevant costs, constraints, availability, status, and other significant factors.
Market Dependent Generation Cost Development System
PowerSpark estimates a unit's substantive energy production cost for market bidding and unit dispatch based on historical and recent expenditure patterns. It maintains unit parameters that are related to the equipment efficiency and operation constraints that may affect the production outcome.
PowerForecaster is a statistical tool that employs weather data and historical actual load data as input to generate load forecasts on a day-ahead and hourly basis and present the results to the RTO's for each service territory. End users may choose to either use the Load Forecast or to enter their own Load Forecast. PowerForecaster can be run several times each morning as part of the day ahead process and executed each hour with revised weather updates. Historical Load and Forecasted Load data resides in the databases indefinitely.
Real Time Outage and Communication
PowerDART is a web-based tool that allows for the communication of real-time and planned outage information between the ISO and member company dispatchers. Integ’s PowerDART system offers power companies the convenience of an interactive bidirectional solution for the submission and audit trail of outage events. It facilitates real-time feedback on the status of requested planned and emergency generation outages. PowerDART also provides automation gains in efficiency and accuracy and synchronizes data across all integrated systems.
