Impact on Electricity Consumption and Market Pricing of Energy and Ancillary Services during Pandemic of COVID-19 in Italy

At the moment of writing, in Italy, there is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Its outbreak is

Analysis of the Fundamental Predictability of Prices in the British Balancing Market

This research analyses the non-linear and complex effects of drivers of system imbalance prices in the GB electricity market. Unlike day-ahead prices, the balancing settlement prices are

A Statistical Approach for Modeling the Aging Effects in Li-Ion Energy Storage Systems

A novel approach based on the definition of a statistical battery degradation cost model, able to estimate the expected costs related to BESS aging, according to the statistical properties of its expected cycling patterns, which can improve the assessment of the economical sustainability of BESSs in smart grids supported by renewable energy sources.

A multilayer, multi-timescale model approach for economic and frequency control in power grids

A multiplex dynamical network model covering all control timescales is introduced, which combines a decentralized, self-organized low-level control and a smart grid layer of devices that can aggregate information from remote sources.

Minority games played by arbitrageurs on the energy market

Optimization of a Power Splitting Protocol for Two-Way Multiple Energy Harvesting Relay System

A joint-optimization solution based on geometric programming (GP) and binary particle swarm optimization is proposed to solve non-convex problems for two utility functions reflecting the level of fairness in the TWR transmission.

Energy efficient planning and operation models for wireless cellular networks

A meta-heuristic approach based on particle swarm optimization algorithm is proposed to find a near optimal resource allocation in addition to the relay amplification matrix gains to meet the increasing quality of service demands in wireless communications and reduce the global carbon footprint at the same time.

Agent-based approach for Decentralized Genetic Algorithm

This study aims at introducing an agent-based model for simulating participants' offering mechanism, and improves and enhances the results obtained from previous authors study, where a decentralized version of the common genetic algorithm was presented.



Green Power Grids: How Energy from Renewable Sources Affects Networks and Markets

A microscopic model is presented for the description and for the forecast of short time fluctuations related to renewable sources in order to estimate their effects on the electricity market and an agent based approach for the prediction of the market players’ behavior is used.

Agent-based model of the Italian wholesale electricity market

This paper proposes an agent-based computational model of the Italian wholesale electricity market. In particular, the aim of the paper is to study how the strategic behavior of the thermal power

Understanding the Fine Structure of Electricity Prices

This paper analyzes the special features of electricity spot prices derived from the physics of this commodity and from the economics of supply and demand in a market pool. Besides mean-reversion, a

Forecasting Next-Day Electricity Prices by Time Series Models

In the framework of competitive electricity markets, power producers and consumers need accurate price forecasting tools. Price forecasts embody crucial information for producers and consumers when

Sizing and analysis of big scale and isolated electric systems based on renewable sources with energy storage

A considerable number of institutions, companies and societies demand and trust the possibility of a sustainable world where the energetic production is based on renewable sources. Most likely future

Reducing the computational effort of stochastic multi-period DC optimal power flow with storage

This work combines elements from both the stochastic and the deterministic OPF, and relies on Benders Cuts to interface them, and finds that one version of the hybrid method leads to at least 70% of the cost improvement of the Stochastic OPF while the computation time increase is at most 40%, which increases with the system size.

Market power and efficiency in a computational electricity market with discriminatory double-auction pricing

It is shown that high market efficiency is generally attained and that market microstructure is strongly predictive for the relative market power of buyers and sellers, independently of the values set for the reinforcement learning parameters.
