EPRI's Pumped Storage Planning and Evaluation Guide was published in 1990. The Guide provides step-by-step procedures to: (a) evaluate pumped-storage operation in a utility system, (b) establish site development concept, (c) estimate capital cost, and (d) conduct economic analysis. The Guide provides a floppy diskette containing a production costing model simulating the chronologic operation of pumped storage in a generating system. It provides a series of estimating curves for the preparation of capital cost estimates. The paper presents how the Guide was organized and prepared, and highlights its contents.
