EXVAL: Change in the time horizon for the hydro setpoints and inclusion of constraints per turbine

J. García-González

May 2023 - July 2023

Funding entity Endesa Medios y Sistemas S.L

The overall goal of the project is to carry out the necessary developments to extend the time horizon in the calculation of water value curves, as well as to include additional constraints by hydraulic groups to obtain more realistic outcomes.

Layman's summary: This project is part of the developments of the Excom model, which allows: 1) determining the schedule of start-ups and shutdowns of the thermal units of ENEL-Endesa, as well as their provisional hourly scheduling, 2) determining the optimal management of hydro resources, and 3) obtaining estimates of daily market prices (MD) taking into account the complete portfolio of purchases and sales of ENEL-Endesa, as well as estimates of the behavior of competing agents.
