  • TITLE: Optimal Scheduling Strategy for Energy Consumption Minimization of Hydro-Thermal Power Systems

    AUTHORS: Jiekang WU

    KEYWORDS: hydro-thermal power systems, optimal electric energy production, water consumption volume

    JOURNAL NAME: Energy and Power Engineering, Vol.1 No.1, August 18, 2009

    ABSTRACT: A comparison analysis based method for computing the water consumption volume needed for electric energy production of optimal scheduling in hydro-thermal power systems is presented in this paper. The electric energy produced by hydroelectric plants and coal-fired plants is divided into 4 components: potential energy, kinetic energy, water-deep pressure energy and reservoir energy. A new and important concept, reservoir energy, is proposed, based on which is divided into a number of water bodies, for example 3 water bodies, and a reservoir is analyzed in a new way. This paper presents an optimal scheduling solution of elec-tric energy production of hydro-thermal power systems based on multi-factors analytic method, in which some important factors, such as load demand, reservoir in-flow, water consumption volume increment rate of hydroelectric plants or converted from coal-fired plants, and so on are given to model the objective function and the constraints. A study example with three simulation cases is carried out to illustrate flexibility, adapta-bility, applicability of the proposed method.
