⬅ Area Configuration


This documentation is dedicated to configuring Thermal Clusters (Thermals) in the Antares Web application.

To access the configuration of Thermals:

  1. From the "Study" view, click on the "MODELIZATION" tab.
  2. Click on the "AREAS" tab, then choose an area from the sidebar.
  3. Next, click on the "THERMALS" tab to access the page dedicated to Thermals.

Thermals List


On the Thermals page, you will find the following elements:

  • Command Bar: Add, duplicate, or delete thermal clusters using the "Add," "Duplicate," and "Delete" buttons.
  • Toolbar: Use the toolbar to filter and quickly search in the thermal clusters table.
  • Selection and Actions: Click on a row to select a thermal cluster. You can then delete or duplicate it.

The thermal clusters table displays the following columns:

  • Group: Name of the group to which the thermal cluster belongs.
  • Name: Name of the thermal cluster (link to the properties form).
  • Enabled: Indicates whether the thermal cluster is enabled.
  • Must run: Indicates whether the thermal cluster must run.
  • Unit Count: Number of units in the thermal cluster.
  • Nominal Capacity (MW): Nominal capacity of the thermal cluster.
  • Enabled/Installed (MW): Enabled/Installed capacity of the thermal cluster.
  • Market Bid (€/MWh): Market bid of the thermal cluster.

The Total row displays the sum of the values in the Unit Count and Enabled/Installed columns.

Configuration Form

Click on the name of a thermal cluster to open the properties form.


You will find the following elements:

  • Click on the "Return" link to go back to the list of thermal clusters.
  • Modify the values and click "Save" to confirm the changes.
  • Use the "↶" buttons to undo changes and "↷" to redo them, confirm the modification with "Save."

Time Series Matrices

In the tabs, you will find time series matrices composed of 8760 rows (hourly for a simulation year).


The available commands are:

  • Assign a Matrix: Search and assign a matrix from the matrix store to Thermal Clusters.
  • Import: Drag and drop a TSV file to update the time series matrices.
  • Export: Download the current TSV file using the "Export" button.

You can edit a cell and confirm with the "Enter" key. You can also edit a group of cells or an entire column and confirm with the "Ctrl+Enter" key combination.

The detailed configuration is available in the Antares Simulator documentation.
