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...

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...

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...

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...

Maintenance scheduling is an important and complex task in hydropower systems. In a liberalized market, the generation company will schedule maintenance periods to maximize the expected profit. This paper describes a method for hydropower maintenance scheduling suitable for a profit maximizing, pric...

Future power production in Europe is expected to include large shares of variable wind and solar power production. Norway, with approximately half of the hydropower reservoir capacity in Europe, can contribute to balance the variability. The aim of this paper is to assess how such a role may impact ...

The authors analyse the operational profitability of a hydropower system selling both energy and reserve capacity in a competitive market setting. A mathematical model based on stochastic dynamic programming is used to compute the water values for the system considering different power plant configu...
