Impact on hydropower plant income from participating in reserve capacity markets
The aim of this work is to simulate prices in the markets for spot and spinning reserve capacity in the Nordic region. We consider four selected seasonal weeks using a model framework for multi-market price forecasting in hydro-thermal power systems. Five different cases for reserve capacity...
Nonconvex Environmental Constraints in Hydropower Scheduling
Environmental constraints in hydropower systems serve to ensure sustainable use of water resources. Through accurate treatment in hydropower scheduling, one seeks to respect such constraints in the planning phase while optimizing the utilization of hydropower. However, many environmental constraints...
On the Importance of Detailed Thermal Modeling for Price Forecasting in Hydro-Thermal Power Systems
This paper presents a framework for long-term price forecasting in hydro-thermal power systems comprising two modeling layers. A long-term hydro-thermal model expresses the expected future cost as a function of hydro reservoir levels to a short-term operational model. The short-term model re...

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...
