Charles River Analytics has secured a contract of undisclosed value to develop an app that will help the U.S. Army engineers analyze the reliability of energy resources.
The company said Thursday it will deliver the Probabilistic Operations Warranted for Energy Reliability Evaluation and Diagnostics, or POWERED app, which uses probability-based modeling to help energy operators prepare for potential outages.
“POWERED is a prognostic and diagnostic app for energy equipment that can help operators maintain power supplies and protect against future risks,“ said Max Metzger, senior software engineer at Charles River Analytics.
The app uses a distributed set of probabilistic relational models to help operators diagnose and forecast failures across systems and components.
Charles River is incorporating its Figaro programming language into POWERED. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded the contract.
