This volume describes the Electric Power Reallocation and Cost model (EPRAC). This model uses linear programming techniques to estimate the cost to power companies of complying with environmental standards that limit thermal pollution. EPRAC was used to postprocess some of the output of the Water Distribution Model (DM) in Vol. IX of this series. A version of EPRAC was also included as a submodel in the Managerial Strategy Design Model in Vol. V.
