Integration of Large-Scale Variable Renewable Energy Sources into the Future European Power System: On the Curtailment Challenge

The future European power system is projected to rely heavily on variable renewable energy sources (VRES), primarily wind and solar generation. However, the difficulties inherent to storing the

On the Curtailments of Variable Renewable Energy Sources in Europe and the Role of Load Shifting

The constant increase of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) into the energy mix will pose significant challenges in the operation of the future European power system. In this paper, we

Classification and Evaluation of Concepts for Improving the Performance of Applied Energy System Optimization Models

A systematic evaluation of several model reduction and heuristic decomposition techniques for a large applied energy system model using real data and particularly focusing on reachable speed-up finds that initial computing times of more than two days can be reduced up to a factor of ten while having acceptable loss of accuracy.

Effects of a Delayed Expansion of Interconnector Capacities in a High RES-E European Electricity System

In order to achieve a high renewable share in the electricity system, a significant expansion of cross-border exchange capacities is planned. Historically, the actual expansion of interconnector


A prerequisite for the further integration of renewable energy sources into the German electricity sector is the expansion of transmission network capacities. In this study, an approach to relieve

Dispatch of Flexibility Options, Grid Infrastructure and Integration of Renewable Energies Within a Decentralized Electricity System

We present results of two model based scenario analysis focussing on the future German power sector which is characterized by a rising share of renewable energies and an associated higher demand for

Allocation of annual electricity consumption and power generation capacities across multiple voltage levels in a high spatial resolution

In this work, electricity demand and power generation are allocated to their corresponding voltage levels and network nodes and it is shown that a consistent data set can be produced in a high spatial resolution using geographical data processing.
