Optimal planning for ES facilities in transmission systems
Project Leader: Hamid Zareipour, University of Calgary
Deterministic co-optimization models will be built for sizing and siting of ES facilities, considering many services and technologies. The models will be built for both utility-owned ES facilities as well as investor-owned merchant facilities. The deterministic models will then be extended to include sources of uncertainty in power systems operation and planning. Stochastic versions of the deterministic models will be developed using techniques such as robust optimization or approximate chance-constrained optimization that make use of convexity and hence can be solved efficiently.
