The Role and Opportunity of Energy/Electricity Storage in the Future Electricity System
Balancing needs and measures in the future West Central European power system with large shares of wind and solar resources
The future European power system will include large shares of variable wind and solar resources. This paper analyses the variability for the eHighway 2050 scenarios (from the EU 7th Framework project) by modelling wind and solar resources from the COSMO-EU model. It quantifies the variability for th...
Value of Additional Norwegian Hydropower to the European Electricity System
Value of additional Norwegian hydropower to the European electricity system
The increase of volatile generation from wind and solar power in Europe leads to a higher demand for flexibility in the electrical energy system. As part of the HydroBalance project this paper assesses the potential of Norwegian hydropower to provide this flexibility to the European energy markets b...
Modelling Minimum Pressure Height in Short-term Hydropower Production Planning
When planning the production for certain hydropower plants, minimum pressure is one of the major critical points. Violation of the minimum pressure causes the power plant to automatically shut down, hence violating the obligations of the plant. Automatic pressure switches and pressure constraints ar...
Scheduling when Reservoirs are Batteries for Wind- and Solar-power
In this paper we take the perspective of a competitive hydropower producer located in Southern Norway, and calculate the profitability of investing in a pumped storage facility in price-scenario for Europe in 2050. A methodology to analyze the combined supply of day-ahead energy and real-time balanc...
Applying successive linear programming for stochastic short-term hydropower optimization
We present a model for operational stochastic short-term hydropower scheduling, taking into account the uncertainty in future prices and inflow, and illustrate how the benefits of using a stochastic rather than a deterministic model can be quantified. The solution method is based on stochastic succe...
