De Paola A, Papadaskalopoulos D, Angeli D, Strbac Get al., 2018, Investigating the Social Efficiency of Merchant Transmission Planning through a Non-Cooperative Game-Theoretic Framework, IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, ISSN: 0885-8950

IEEE Merchant transmission planning is considered as a further step towards the full liberalization of the electricity industry. However, previous modeling approaches do not comprehensively explore its social efficiency as they cannot effectively deal with a large number of merchant companies. This paper addresses this fundamental challenge by adopting a novel non-cooperative game-theoretic approach. Specifically, the number of merchant companies is assumed sufficiently large to be approximated as a continuum. This allows the derivation of mathematical conditions for the existence of a Nash Equilibrium solution of the merchant planning game. By analytically and numerically comparing this solution against the one obtained through the traditional centralized planning approach, the paper demonstrates that merchant planning can maximize social welfare only when the following conditions are satisfied: a) fixed investment costs are neglected and b) the network is radial and does not include any loops. Given that these conditions do not generally hold in reality, these findings suggest that even a fully competitive merchant transmission planning framework, involving the participation of a very large number of competing merchant companies, is not generally capable of maximizing social welfare.

Giannelos S, Konstantelos I, Strbac G, 2018, Option Value of Demand-Side Response schemes under Decision-Dependent Uncertainty, IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, ISSN: 0885-8950

IEEE Uncertainty in power system planning problems can be categorized into two types: exogenous and endogenous (or decision-dependent) uncertainty. In the latter case, uncertainty resolution depends on a choice (the value of some decision variables), as opposed to the former case in which the uncertainty resolves automatically with the passage of time. In this paper a novel stochastic multi-stage planning model is proposed that considers endogenous uncertainty around consumer participation in demand-side response (DSR) schemes. This uncertainty can resolve following DSR deployment in two possible ways: locally (at a single bus) and globally (across the entire system). The original formulation is decomposed with the use of Benders decomposition to improve computational performance. Two versions of Benders decomposition are applied: the classic version involving sequential implementation of all operational subproblems and a novel version, specific to problems with endogenous uncertainty, which allows for the parallel execution of only those operational subproblems that are guaranteed to have a unique contribution to the solution. Case studies on 11-bus and 123-bus systems illustrate the process of endogenous uncertainty resolution and underline the strategic importance of deploying DSR ahead of time.

IEEE The envisaged decarbonization of the European power system introduces complex techno-economic challenges to its operation and development. Demand flexibility can significantly contribute in addressing these challenges and enable a cost-effective transition to the low-carbon future. Although extensive previous work has analyzed the impacts of residential and commercial demand flexibility, the respective potential of the industrial sector has not yet been thoroughly investigated despite its large size. This paper presents a novel, whole-system modeling framework to comprehensively quantify the potential economic benefits of flexible industrial demand (FID) for the European power system. This framework considers generation, transmission and distribution sectors of the system, and determines the least-cost long-term investment and short-term operation decisions. FID is represented through a generic, process-agnostic model, which however accounts for fixed energy requirements and load recovery effects associated with industrial processes. The numerical studies demonstrate multiple significant value streams of FID in Europe, including capital cost savings by avoiding investments in additional generation and transmission capacity and distribution reinforcements, as well as operating cost savings by enabling higher utilization of renewable generation sources and providing balancing services.

Falugi P, Konstantelos I, Strbac G, 2017, Planning with Multiple Transmission and Storage Investment Options under Uncertainty: A Nested Decomposition Approach, IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, ISSN: 0885-8950

IEEE Achieving the ambitious climate change mitigation objectives set by governments worldwide is bound to lead to unprecedented amounts of network investment to accommodate low-carbon sources of energy. Beyond investing in conventional transmission lines, new technologies such as energy storage can improve operational flexibility and assist with the cost-effective integration of renewables. Given the long lifetime of these network assets and their substantial capital cost, it is imperative to decide on their deployment on a long-term cost-benefit basis. However, such an analysis can result in large-scale Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problems which contain many thousands of continuous and binary variables. Complexity is severely exacerbated by the need to accommodate multiple candidate assets and consider a wide range of exogenous system development scenarios that may occur. In this manuscript we propose a novel, efficient and highly-generalizable framework for solving large-scale planning problems under uncertainty by using a temporal decomposition scheme based on the principles of Nested Benders. The challenges that arise due to the presence of non-sequential investment state equations and sub-problem non-convexity are highlighted and tackled. The substantial computational gains of the proposed method are demonstrated via a case study on the IEEE 118 bus test system that involve planning of multiple transmission and storage assets under long-term uncertainty.
