Stochastic Optimization Approach to Water Management in Cooling-Constrained Power Plants

We propose a stochastic optimization framework to perform water management in coolingconstrained power plants. The approach determines optimal set-points to maximize power output in the presence of uncertain weather conditions and water intake constraints. Weather uncertainty is quantified in the form of ensembles using the state-of-the-art numerical weather prediction model WRF. The framework enables us … Read more
