The paper discusses the development of the Advanced Utility Simulation Model (AUSM), developed for the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program, to forecast air emissions of pollutants from electric utilities. AUSM integrates generating unit engineering detail with dynamic strategic decisions made by utility planners and coal miners. Decisions about capacity additions and emissions control strategies for one unit, state, and year influence (and are influenced by) decisions made for other units, states, and years. Emissions control economics are controlled by unit-specific factors and by market factors. Designed as a cost-minimization model, AUSM integrates decisions about each unit with decisions about other units through competition for coal, interstate electricity transmission, intrastate system dispatch, and power pool, state, and unit-level emissions limits.
