Columbus, Ohio-based Battelle has agreed to extend its existing relationship with Gridquant and become the exclusive distributor of Gridquant software in the U.S., U.S. territories, Canada and India.

Battelle holds an equity stake in Gridquant and its software tools - including the patented Holomorphic Embedding Load-Flow Method (HELM) - and will embark immediately on the launch of Gridquant's new HELM-Flow product.

According to Battelle, HELM-Flow is an offline planning tool built on HELM that integrates with existing tools such as PSLF and PSSe to allow greater insight into transmission modeling.

"It is a great strategic fit with our existing portfolio of solutions in energy and environment,” says Spencer Pugh, general manager of Battelle's energy and environment business unit. “Battelle is very excited about playing a role in the widespread adoption of HELM tools throughout the electric utility industry."
