Optimizing day-ahead bid curves in hydropower production
Modeling start/stop in short-term multi-market hydropower scheduling
We present a hydropower scheduling model for coordinated trade in the day-ahead and balancing market with alternative ways to represent generator start/stop decisions. A case study on a branch of a Norwegian water course is conducted, with analysis going in two directions: how does the start/stop fe...

Optimal medium-term hydropower scheduling considering energy and reserve capacity markets
Print Request Permissions This paper describes a method for optimal scheduling of hydropower systems for a profit maximizing, price-taking, and risk neutral producer selling energy, and capacity to separate and sequentially cleared markets. The method is based on a combination of stochastic dynamic ...
Profitability of a Hydro Power Producer Bidding in Multiple Power Markets
The production scheduling of a hydro power producer exposed to the day-ahead, balancing and capacity market is examined to find what profit the producer may achieve by strategically bid in the above mentioned markets. Optimizing the bidding in multiple markets is expected to be increasingly importan...
Hydropower Scheduling Considering Energy and Reserve Capacity Markets : Using a combined SDP/SDDP algorithm
Stochastic Modeling of Natural Gas Infrastructure Development in Europe under Demand Uncertainty
We present an analysis of the optimal development of natural gas infrastructure in Europe based on the scenario studies of Holz and von Hirschhausen (2013). We use a stochastic mixed integer quadratic model to analyze the impact of uncertainty about future natural gas consumption in Europe on optima...
Adding flexibility in a natural gas transportation network using interruptible transportation services
We present a modeling framework for analyzing if the use of interruptible transportation services can improve capacity utilization in a natural gas transportation network. The network consists of two decision makers: the transmission system operator (TSO) and a shipper of natural gas. The TSO is res...
Co-optimizing sales of energy and capacity in a hydropower scheduling model
Email Print Request Permissions This paper describes a model for optimal scheduling of hydroelectric systems for a price-taking producer selling energy and capacity to separate markets. The model is based on a combination of stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) and stochastic dual dynamic programmin...
