Multi-Area Energy and Reserve Dispatch Under Wind Uncertainty and Equipment Failures
The cross-border trading among electricity markets in an interconnected multi-area system (e.g., in central Europe) and the integration of renewable resources (e.g., wind energy) have remarkably increased in recent years. To efficiently operate such system, a proper coordination among different areas is required. Within this context, a decentralized algorithm for market clearing is proposed in this paper to dispatch simultaneously energy and reserve under wind generation uncertainty and equipment failures. The proposed technique does not require a central operator but just a moderate interchange of information among neighboring areas. Additionally, the benefit of cross-border trading is studied.
