Teshmont developed a loss factor methodology and set of tools, which are used by the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), to calculate the losses and allocate the associated costs. The resulting methodology has a major economic impact on the energy market participants, and provides an additional signal and incentive to reduce system inefficiencies.

Teshmont performed an interconnection study for ENMAX regarding the proposed 165 MW Bonnybrook generating station. Teshmont performed power flow, transient and short circuit studies to assess system performance and reliability prior to the addition of the ENMAX Bonnybrook station.

Teshmont performed detailed system and design studies and prepared specifications for the Itaipu transmission system project. Teshmont also carried out a “state of the art” study, to establish the most appropriate technology to transmit the power. This was followed by a feasibility study of alternative transmission systems including 500 kV, 765 kV, and 1000 kV ac, as well as ±600 kV dc. A technical and cost study of ac and dc transmission showed that transmission at 765 kV ac was the optimum alternative.
