Hydro Optimisation in PLEXOS

Published 25 April 2016 | By Energy Exemplar

Power systems having both hydro-electric and thermal generation require a systematic and coordinated approach in order to determine an optimal policy for dam operations. The goal of a hydro-thermal planning tool is to minimise the expected thermal costs along the simulation period. These types of problems generally require stochastic analysis to deal with inflow uncertainty. This can increase the mathematical size of the problem and can easily become cumbersome to solve.
