Robust reserve scheduling techniques for power systems with high wind penetration


Denzel Voesenek

Semester Thesis, FS12 (10154)

With the growing interest in renewable energy sources, difficulties arise regarding secure power system operation of the energy grid. More specific, due to the stochastic nature of renewable energy sources, the availability of those renewable energy sources will fluctuate over time in a not precisely predictable way. In order to cope with the unpredictable nature of wind energy, the production schedule in an energy markets needs to be predicted efficiently and adjusted during the actual realisation of a wind scenario. As the amount of wind energy generated increases, the need for up-, down- and non-spinning reserves will increase, which translates into higher operating cost. Since the electricity markets are cleared well in advance, the scheduled generation of energy and reserves have to be provided up front. This shows the necessity of improved methods to schedule reserves in the network to cope with this increased volatility.
