Multistage Stochastic Demand-side Management for Price-Making Major Consumers of Electricity in a Co-optimized Energy and Reserve Market

In this paper we take an optimization-driven heuristic approach, motivated by dynamic programming, to solve a multistage stochastic optimization of energy consumption for a large manufacturer who is a price-making major consumer of electricity. We introduce a mixed-integer program that co-optimizes consumption bids and interruptible load reserve offers, for such a major consumer over a … Read more

Co-optimization of Demand Response and Reserve Offers for a Major Consumer

In this paper we present a stochastic optimization problem for a strategic major consumer who has flexibility over its consumption and can offer reserve. Our model is a bi-level optimization model (reformulated as a mixed-integer program) that embeds the optimal power flow problem, in which electricity and reserve are co-optimized. We implement this model for … Read more
