Risk-Aware Security-Constrained Unit Commitment

To better handle real-time load and wind generation volatility in unit commitment, we present an enhancement to the computation of security-constrained unit commitment (SCUC) problem. More specifically, we propose a two-stage optimization model for SCUC, which aims to provide a risk-aware schedule for power generation. Our model features a data-driven uncertainty set based on principal component analysis, which accommodates both load and wind production volatility and captures locational correlation of uncertain data. To solve the model more efficiently, we develop a decomposition algorithm that can handle nonconvex subproblems. Our extensive experiments on NYISO dataset show that the risk-aware model protects the public from potential high costs caused by adverse circumstances.
