Derivation of Robust Storage Targets for Large-Scale Pumped Hydro Energy Storage Using PLEXOS

Published 25 April 2016 | By Energy Exemplar

This paper examines the modelling of large-scale pumped hydro energy storage in future power systems where variable generation, primarily in the form of wind generation, is the dominant source of power generation. It is shown that current deterministic modelling techniques do not give a correct valuation to pumped hydro storage and can in cases overvalue the resource.
