Course: Optimal Operation of Power Plants in a Power System
ECTS points: 6 ECTS
Number of classes per week: 3+0+0+3
Lecturer: Asst. Prof. Dr. Sofija Nikolova – Poceva
Course Goals (acquired competencies): Upon completing this course, the student acquires knowledge about the application of methods and techniques for solving the problem of optimal generation scheduling of power plants in a complex power system. The student is able to use modern software tools to solve the optimal operation of power plants.
Course Syllabus: Dividing the load diagram of a constant and a variable part. Filling of the load diagram with the production of various types of power plants. Flexible approach to optimization task in terms of the optimization period and separation of different time intervals (number and length). Modeling of thermal power plants (TPP). Cost and energetic characteristics of TPP. Taking account the repairs of TPP. Modeling of hydro power plants (HPP) (run-of-river, storage and reversible HPP). Modes of operation of HPP in terms of hydrological conditions and possibilities for filling and empting the reservoir. Modeling of wind power plants. Methodology for determining the optimal number of units in operation in hydro power plants. Solving complex hydraulic systems and modeling of cascaded hydro power plants. Optimal operation of conventional power plants in a complex power system with integrated wind power plants. Multiobjective optimization: balancing the water in each HPP for a certain period, balance between water inflow and outflow. Application of MATLAB for solving the problem of optimal generation scheduling of power plants in a complex power system.
