What is Capacity Optimization? 

The Capacity Trader and Capacity Dispatch Optimizer software solutions allow gas plant operators to increase output and energy production at times of highest demand without costly maintenance adders or adversely impacting the maintenance interval.

GE Digital's Capacity Optimization software significantly increases the revenue stream of a Gas Turbine's existing peak fire mode capability by identifying the high profit opportunities and helping the operator to be online during those times.


With the changes in the power generation industry, operators seeking ways to maximize dispatch and revenue in the new environment have a solution for meeting the changing economic demands.
