Description

This course provides a detailed description of decision-making tools for modern power systems under the market environment, addressing the perspectives transmission expansion planning, unit commitment and economic dispatch. These tools rely on stochastic optimization, complementarity theory and decomposition algorithms.

The topics include:

  • Introduction to the electricity market organization
  • Modeling the competition in electric energy markets
  • Stochastic unit commitment to coop with the renewable generations
  • Probabilistic midterm transmission expansion planning in liberalized markets
  • Decomposition and acceleration techniques for large-scale optimization problems

Prerequisites

Background in power system optimization, and fundamental knowledge in electricity markets.
