Integrating Balancing Markets in Hydropower Scheduling Methods
The future European electricity system will be more integrated cross-borders and will include a larger share of renewable intermittent generation than what is the case today.
Techno-economical decision tool for maintenance of power transformers
SINTEF Energy Research is currently carrying out a research project on condition assessment of power transformers for ten of the major power, transmission and distribution companies in Norway.
The stochastic short-term model SHARM
The goal of the "Validation of the SHARM model" project is to facilitate implementation of the SHARM (Short-term Hydropower Application with Risk Modelling) model in the hydropower industry.
SOVN - A new fundamental market model - Including individual water values and power flow constraints
New stochastic optimisation model for Scandinavia In future, the Scandinavian power supply system will have closer connections with Europe and an increasing proportion of uncontrollable renewable generation from, for example, wind and unregulated hydroelectric systems. There is therefore a need to develop a new model which takes into account unpredictable fluctuations in unregulated generation.
Norwegian hydropower reservoirs offer the possibility for balancing the growing wind power production in Europe.
The overall objective of FutureHydro is to promote bilateral exchange of knowledge, technology and experience between Norway and China and enlarge the scientific knowledge regarding the use of hydropower and pump-storage as a battery to balance intermittent energy sources.
Improved development and management of energy and water resources - EcoManage
The main objective of EcoManage is to test, evaluate and adapt new concepts and indicators for the improved development and management of energy and water resources.
