Many of the tools are analyzing longer term impacts on the steady-state operations of power systems and are primarily using cost as a metric. They are also using tools that are often inflexible to accommodating different market designs or operational structures. In this paper a model was developed to mimic operator behavior using a combination of security-constrained unit commitment, security-constrained economic dispatch, and automatic generation control programs. New metrics are used to compare reliability in terms of energy imbalance for different systems or different market and operational structures at very high time resolution. Finally an example application of the tool and results for a test system are shown.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2011 IEEE||Keywords:||Automatic generation control;Economic dispatch;Power system operations;Unit commitment;Wind integration||Subject LCSH:||Electric power systems--Control
