Day-Ahead Contingency-Constrained Unit Commitment with Co-Optimized Post-Contingency Transmission Switching

Transmission switching has been previously shown to offer significant benefits to power system operation, such as cost savings and the reduction of power imbalance levels. Within the context of co-optimized electricity markets for energy and reserves, this paper addresses the incorporation of transmission switching in the contingency-constrained unit commitment problem. The proposed generation scheduling model … Read more
