This paper presents a static generation expansion planning formulation in which operational and investment decisions for a wide range of technologies are co-optimized from a centralized perspective. The location, type and quantity of new generation and storage capacities are provided such that system demand and flexibility requirements are satisfied. Depending on investments in new intermittent renewables (wind, PV), the flexibility requirements are adapted in order to fully capture RES…

Impact of operational flexibility on electricity generation planning with renewable and carbon targets

Recent work on operational flexibility-a power system's ability to respond to variations in demand and supply-has focused on the impact of large penetration of renewable generation on existing power

Evaluating and Planning Flexibility in Sustainable Power Systems

A systematic approach to evaluate the flexibility level and investigate the role of flexibility in generation planning and market operation shows that the market design plays an important role in the efficient deployment and subsequent profitability of flexibility resources.

Do unit commitment constraints affect generation expansion planning? A scalable stochastic model

A centralized network-constrained generation expansion planning model incorporating UC constraints is developed, which considers start-up and shut-down costs, minimum production level and hourly ramping limits of conventional units, and is modeled through a set of scenarios.

Impact of unit commitment constraints on generation expansion planning with renewables

Growing use of renewables pushes thermal generators against operating constraints — e.g. ramping, minimum output, and operating reserves — that are traditionally ignored in expansion planning models.

The Impact of Operating Reserves on Investment Planning of Renewable Power Systems

To limit computational effort, current power system expansion planning tools typically consider limited detail on the technical constraints of power systems, such as the need for operating reserves.
