Planning tools for hydropower scheduling in renewable energy systems
Electricity Prices and Value of Flexible Generation in Northern Europe in 2030
The aim of this paper is to quantify the value of flexible power generation technologies in Northern Europe in 2030, and in particular hydropower with storage. Two scenarios for the European power system in 2030 are presented. The study uses a fundamental hydrothermal power system model for the comb...
Research on Extreme Upgrading of Existing Hydropower Systems
Results from the MAD-project
Norway as a Battery for the Future European Power System – Comparison of Two Different Methodological Approaches
This paper compares the simulation results for two stochastic optimization power market models. EMPS uses aggregation and heuristics to calculate the optimal dispatch. SOVN simulates the operation of the power system in one large linear programming problem taking each single plant and reservoir into...
Benchmarking Hydro Operation by Use of a Simulator
The paper describes how a simulator is used to benchmark TrønderEnergis’ historical operation of one of their hydro systems. The simulator is a data program that simulates daily hydro optimization and scheduling tasks for the historical period 2005 to 2015. The purpose of the benchmark is to ev...
Modeling and Quantifying the Importance of Snow Storage Information for the Nordic Power System
This paper describes how snow storage information can be used to improve the hydro operation strategy in a newly developed hydrothermal market simulation model. The model was applied to a detailed description of the Nordic system, and simulation results show that the value of knowledge about the sno...
Multi-Market Price Forecasting in Hydro-Thermal Power Systems
This paper presents a framework for price forecasting in hydro-thermal power systems. The framework consists of a long-term strategic and a short-term operational model. The strategic model provides the end-of-horizon valuation of water in hydro storages as input to the operational model. We emphasi...
