Improving the methodology to model reservoir hydro power in a unit commitment model using simplified river system constraints

Abstract

As the share of variable and uncertain power generation from wind power and PV increases, power systems will benefit from additional flexibility from reservoir hydro power. The article sets out to improve the way reservoir hydro power embedded within river systems is modelled in a unit commitment and dispatch model. The proposed method utilizes a more detailed model to limit the use of hydro power in the unit commitment model, if the original hydro power generation plan is not possible due to river system constraints. The detailed model includes linkages between the reservoirs and power stations along the river system.
