Optimal bidding in hourly and quarter-hourly electricity price auctions: trading large volumes of power with market impact and transaction costs

  title={Optimal bidding in hourly and quarter-hourly electricity price auctions: trading large volumes of power with market impact and transaction costs},
  author={Michał Narajewski and Florian Ziel},
Electricity exchanges offer several trading possibilities for market participants: derivative products like futures, the spot market consisting of auctions and continuous trading, and balancing markets. This variety of choice creates a new question for traders – when and how much to trade to maximize the profit. When trading larger volumes this problem gets particularly important as such trades influence the prices substantially. The following paper raises this issue considering two markets… 


Optimal bidding functions for renewable energies in sequential electricity markets
In most modern energy markets, electricity is traded in pay-as-clear auctions. Usually, multiple sequential markets with daily auctions, in which each hourly product is traded separately, coexist. In
Bidding in sequential electricity markets: The Nordic case
A Nordic power producer who engages in the day-ahead spot market and the hour-ahead balancing market is considered and the gain from coordinated bidding is quantified, and the performance of alternative bidding strategies used in practice is assessed.
Optimal Order Execution in Intraday Markets: Minimizing Costs in Trade Trajectories
Optimal execution, i.e., the determination of the most cost-effective way to trade volumes in continuous trading sessions, has been a topic of interest in the equity trading world for years.
Aggregators' Optimal Bidding Strategy in Sequential Day-Ahead and Intraday Electricity Spot Markets
This paper proposes a probabilistic optimization method that produces optimal bidding curves to be submitted by an aggregator to the day-ahead electricity market and the intraday market, considering
Econometric Analysis of 15-Minute Intraday Electricity Prices
The trading activity in the German intraday electricity market has increased significantly over the last years. This is partially due to an increasing share of renewable energy, wind and
An Econometric Model for Intraday Electricity Trading
This paper develops an econometric price model with fundamental impacts for intraday electricity markets of 15-minute contracts. A unique data set of intradaily updated forecasts of renewable power
Price-Taker Offering Strategy in Electricity Pay-as-Bid Markets
The recent increase in the deployment of renewable energy sources may affect the offering strategy of conventional producers, mainly in the balancing market. The topics of optimal offering strategy
Strategic offering of a flexible producer in day-ahead and intraday power markets
It is demonstrated that a flexible producer with perfect forecasts can increase its profit in both markets by coordinating its offer so as to cause transmission grid congestion or lack of competitive generation capacity and verified that strategic offering in day-ahead and intraday markets under imperfect forecasts leads to increased profits.
Optimal bidding of a virtual power plant on the Spanish day-ahead and intraday market for electricity
An extensive out-of-sample comparison demonstrates that the optimal policy obtained by the stochastic program clearly outperforms deterministic planning, a pure day-ahead strategy, a benchmark that only uses the day- Ahead market and the first intraday market, as well as a proprietary stochastically programming approach developed in the industry.
Intraday Electricity Pricing of Night Contracts
This paper investigates the intraday electricity pricing of 15-min. contracts in night hours. We tailor a recently introduced econometric model with fundamental impacts, which is successful in
