Abstract

In this paper the short-term optimal operation of an electric system comprising several thermal power plants and one pumped storage plant is studied in several scenarios of power demand and wind penetration in order to draw conclusions about the contribution of the pumped storage plant to system operation costs. A mixed integer linear programming model is used to obtain the optimal hourly thermal, hydro and pumping powers so that the production cost of the entire system is minimized. An aggregated piecewise linear hourly production cost curve is used to represent the thermal generation; the marginal production cost varying as a function of the power generated according to the slope of each piecewise linear segment. Main design parameters of the pumped storage plant are not considered fixed in the model but rather they are obtained in the solution with the purpose of drawing conclusions about the plant optimal sizing
