Title: Short term operation planning of hydro stations considered as price makers using the MATLAB LINPROG® function
Issue Date: 2016-11-07
Abstract: The restructuring of power systems induced newchallenges to generation companies in terms ofadequately planning the operation of power stations inorder to maximize their profits. In this scope, hydroresources are becoming extremely valuable given therevenues that their operation can generate. In this paperwe describe the application of the Matlab® Linprogoptimization function to solve the Short Term HydroScheduling Problem, HSP, admitting that some stationsare installed in the same cascade and that some of themhave pumping capabilities. The optimization module tosolve the HSP problem is then integrated in an iterativeprocess to take into account the impact that theoperation decisions regarding the hydro stations underanalysis have on the market prices. The updated marketprices are then used to run again the HSP problem thusenabling considering the hydro stations as price makers.The developed approach is illustrated using a systembased on the Portuguese Douro River cascade thatincludes 9 hydro stations (4 of them are pumpingstations) and a total installed capacity of 1485 MW.
