CONFI-SIN is a specialized consulting services project for assessing the reliability of Bolivia’s National Interconnected System. Starting in October 2021, the consultancy is divided into three main steps.

Among CONFI-SIN’s steps are: the evaluation of the reliability of the SIN-Bolivia from the perspective of static reserve (stationary regime); the elaboration of technical-scientific models and methodologies capable of representing, from the perspective of adequacy, the components of the SIN, seeking to capture operational aspects and evaluate operational conditions linked to the use of energy resources for energy production; and the elaboration of guidelines that establish standards and criteria to be used in defining the levels of operational reserve necessary to guarantee the supply of electricity to SIN consumers in a continuous, reliable and safe way, considering the SIN’s current and future constraints.

The Project coordination is performed by INESC R&D Brazil and it has the participation of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), and the Federal Institute of Santa Catarina (IFSC), financed by the National Committee for Load Dispatch of Bolivia (CNDC).
