Energy generation from intermittent renewable sources introduces additional variability into electrical systems, resulting in a higher cost of balancing against the increased variabilities. Ways to balance demand and supply for electricity include using flexible generation resources, storage operations, and curtailing intermittent generation. This paper focuses on the operational and environmental impact of curtailing intermittent generation. We construct a stochastic dynamic optimization model… Expand
Economic Curtailment of Intermittent Renewable Energy Sources
In a power system featuring a large share of intermittent renewable energy sources (RES) and inflexible thermal generators, efficiency gains on generation costs could be achieved by curtailing theExpand
Economic curtailment of intermittent renewable energy sources
Abstract In a power system featuring a large share of intermittent renewables and inflexible thermal generators, efficiency gains could be achieved by curtailing the production of renewables.Expand
Economic curtailment of renewable energy sources.
Overview Curtailment of renewables is only allowed today when it is necessary to guarantee the safety of the system. Yet, in a power system featuring a large share of intermittent renewable energyExpand

TLDR
This work proposes a dynamic pricing mechanism that explicitly encourages consumers to adapt their consumption so as to offset the variability of demand on conventional units and shows that the proposed pricing mechanism achieves social optimality asymptotically, as the number of consumers increases to infinity.

Understanding How Generation Flexibility and Renewable Energy Affect Power Market Competition
TLDR
It is found that the classic supply function equilibrium model overestimates the intensity of the market competition, and even more so when more intermittent generation is introduced into the system. Expand
Understanding How Generation Flexibility and Renewable Energy Affect Power Market Competition
We study supply function competition among conventional power generators with different levels of flexibility and the impact of intermittent renewable power generation on the competition. InflexibleExpand
Managing Wind-Based Electricity Generation in the Presence of Storage and Transmission Capacity
The electricity industry is currently considering co-locating wind generation and electricity storage facilities. This configuration would allow wind-farms to: (i) store wind generation that exceedsExpand

Among the many issues that profoundly affect the world economy every day, energy is one of the most prominent. Countries such as the U.S. strive to reduce reliance on the import of fossil fuels, andExpand
Capacity Investment in Renewable Energy Technology with Supply Intermittency: Data Granularity Matters!
TLDR
It is shown that data granularity for renewable yield and electricity demand at a fine level, such as hourly, matters and that coarse data that does not reflect the intermittency of renewable generation may lead to an overinvestment in renewable capacity. Expand

TLDR
A model of a wind or solar photovoltaic plus gas system using measured 1-min time-resolved emissions and heat rate data from two types of natural gas generators, and power data from four wind plants and one solar plant finds CO2 emissions achieve approximately 80% of the emissions reductions expected if the power fluctuations caused no additional emissions.
