Risk-Aware Dimensioning and Procurement of Contingency Reserve

  title={Risk-Aware Dimensioning and Procurement of Contingency Reserve},
  author={Robert Mieth and Yury Dvorkin and Miguel A. Ortega-Vazquez},
Current contingency reserve criteria ignore the likelihood of individual contingencies and, thus, their impact on system reliability and risk. This paper develops an iterative approach, inspired by the current security-constrained unit commitment (SCUC) practice, enabling system operators to determine risk-cognizant contingency reserve requirements and their allocation with minimal alterations to the current SCUC practice. The proposed approach uses generator and transmission system reliability… Expand

Reliability-Aware Probabilistic Reserve Procurement
The proposed probabilistic reserve procurement allows restricted reserve providers to enter the market, thereby increases liquidity and has the potential to lower procurement costs in power systems with high shares of variable renewable energy sources. Expand


Probabilistic Security-Constrained Unit Commitment With Generation and Transmission Contingencies
System operators maintain sufficient reserve in power systems in order to respond to generation and transmission contingencies. Traditionally, the reserve requirements have been determined usingExpand
Incorporating energy storage into probabilistic security‐constrained unit commitment
This study presents a multiperiod probabilistic security-constrained unit commitment (UC) model that includes the probabilities of generation and transmission contingencies for optimal reserve sizing, sourcing, allocation, and timing. Expand
A Data-Driven Reserve Response Set Policy for Power Systems With Stochastic Resources
Test results illustrate that the proposed model consistently outperforms the benchmark policies by improving the market efficiency and enhancing the reliability of the market solution while maintaining scalability and transparency. Expand
A Reserve Response Set Model for Systems with Stochastic Resources
The proposed model aims to address the allocation and deliverability issues associated with reserves by using reserve response set policies and by modeling the predicted post-contingency effects of nodal reserve deployment on critical transmission elements. Expand
Optimizing the Spinning Reserve Requirements Using a Cost/Benefit Analysis
Spinning reserve (SR) is one of the most important resources used by system operators to respond to unforeseen events such as generation outages and sudden load changes. While keeping large amountsExpand
Contingency-Constrained Unit Commitment With $n - K$ Security Criterion: A Robust Optimization Approach
This paper presents a new approach for the contingency-constrained single-bus unit commitment problem. The proposed model explicitly incorporates an n - K security criterion by which power balance isExpand
Market-clearing with stochastic security-part I: formulation
The first of this two-paper series formulates a stochastic security-constrained multi-period electricity market-clearing problem with unit commitment. The stochastic security criterion accounts for aExpand
Optimising the spinning reserve requirements considering failures to synchronise
System operators use spinning reserve (SR) to respond to unforeseen events such as generation outages and unforeseen load changes. The amount of SR that a system must carry is usually determined onExpand

This paper demonstrates how a probabilistic criterion based on the full capacity outage probability distribution (e.g., LOLP) could be integrated into the unit commitment (UC) optimization usingExpand
Dynamic Reserve Zones for Day-Ahead Unit Commitment With Renewable Resources
As more non-dispatchable renewable resources are integrated into the grid, it will become increasingly difficult to predict the transfer capabilities and the network congestion. At the same time,Expand
