AbstractOn current electricity markets the electrical utilities are faced with very sophisticated decision making problems under uncertainty. Moreover, when focusing in the short-term management, generation companies must include some medium-term products that directly influence their short-term strategies. In this work, the bilateral and physical futures contracts are included into the day-ahead market bid following MIBEL rules and a stochastic quadratic mixed-integer programming model is presented. The complexity of this stochastic programming problem makes unpractical the resolution of large-scale instances with general-purpose optimization codes. Therefore, in order to gain efficiency, a polyhedral outer approximation of the quadratic objective function obtained by means of perspective cuts (PC) is proposed. A set of instances of the problem has been defined with real data and solved with the PC methodology. The numerical results obtained show the efficiency of this methodology compared with standard mixed quadratic optimization solvers.

AbstractShort-term electricity market is made up of a sequence of markets, that is, it is a multimarket enviroment. In the case of the Iberian Energy Market the sequence of major short-term electricity markets are the day-ahead market, the ancillary service market or secondary reserve market (henceforth reserve market), and a set of six intraday markets. Generation Companies (GenCos) that participate in the electricity market could increase their benefits by jointly optimizing their participation in this sequence of electricity markets. This work proposes a stochastic programming model that gives the GenCo the optimal bidding strategy for the day-ahead market (DAM), which considers the benefits and costs of participating in the subsequent markets and which includes both physical futures contracts and bilateral contracts. Numerical results are reported and discussed.

AbstractThe objective of this work is to find an optimal commercial strategy in the production market that would allow wind producer to maximize their daily profit. That can be achieved on one hand, increasing incomes in day-ahead and intraday markets, on the other hand, reducing deviation costs due to error in generation predictions.

AbstractThe electric market regulation in Spain (MIBEL) establishes the rules for bilateral contracts in the day-ahead optimal bid problem. Our model allows a price-taker generation company to decide the unit commitment of the thermal units, the economic dispatch of the bilateral contracts between the thermal units and the optimal sale bids for the thermal units observing the MIBEL regulation. The uncertainty of the spot prices is represented through scenario sets. We solve this model on the framework of the Branch and Fix Coordination metodology as a quadratic, two-stage stochastic problem. Numerical results are reported.

Conference Name57^th Session of the International Statistical Institute
Key Wordsresearch; DPI2008-02153; electricity markets; TSFA; spot price scenarios; paper
AbstractIn liberalized electricity markets, Generation Companies must build an hourly bid that is sent to the market operator. The price at which the energy will be paid is unknown during the bidding process and has to be forecast. In this work we apply forecasting factor models to this framework and study its suitability.

AbstractEl presente trabajo plantea la resolución computacional de un modelo de optimización de la oferta de generación eléctrica para compañías eléctricas que participan en el mercado eléctrico liberalizado MIBEL. Dicho mercado se circunscribe a España y Portugal y se compone de una serie de subastas energéticas consecutivas donde el operador de mercado realiza para cada una de ellas la casación entre la oferta y demanda. Así, el objetivo de la compañía generadora será maximizar los beneficios obtenidos en la participación del conjunto de mercados teniendo en cuenta el cumplimiento de las obligaciones contractuales ya establecidas. El modelo matemático propuesto para su caracterización corresponde a un modelo de programación estocástica multietapa cuyo equivalente determinista es un problema de optimización cuadrática con variable binaria. Con el objetivo de aprovechar la estructura del problema se procede a plantear la dualización de un grupo de restricciones que producen que el problema original pueda ser dividido en subproblemas. Para su resolución se deberá estudiar la idoneidad de diversos métodos duales (subgradiente, Bundle Methods, ACCPM) y seleccionar el más conveniente para el caso abordado. La decisión finalmente adoptada ha consistido en elegir como método de resolución el algoritmo Proximal Bundle Method descrito en [18] y adaptado satisfactoriamente a problemas de coordinación de la generación hidro-térmica [17]. El análisis de método Proximal Bundle Method corresponderá a su compresión e interpretación gráfica, a la resolución de un ejemplo de pequeña escala de manera analítica y a su resolución computacional. El objetivo de la fase de resolución será valorar el proceso iterativo y la convergencia del Proximal Bundle Method aplicado al problema multimercado de oferta óptima y la comparación de resultados respecto a otro método dual como el método del subgradiente. La implementación computacional se realizará mediante el lenguaje C++, específicamente se utilizará el metalenguaje Concert Techonolgy creado por IBM para el enlace entre el código C++ y el solver CPLEX. Se comprueba que dicho lenguaje tiene como ventajas principales su simplicidad estructural y el compacto código que produce. No obstante la implementación del Proximal Bundle Method manifiesta una serie de limitaciones prácticas de Concert Technology en cuanto al almacenado y actualización de problemas de optimización. Se propone como línea de futuro el análisis de lenguajes alternativos. En todo caso, los resultados obtenidos desprenden que el Proximal Bundle Method se adapta satisfactoriamente al problema multimercado de oferta óptima, además se concluye que en la aplicación numérica considerada un tamaño de Bundle ilimitado produce los mejores resultados. Además en trabajo propone una serie de líneas de investigación futuras en las que destacan la paralelización de la resolución de los subproblemas, y la definición del subproblema asociado a cada térmica como un problema de caminos mínimos
