Battery Storage Formulation and Impact on Day Ahead Security Constrained Unit Commitment

This paper discusses battery storage formulations and analyzes the impact of the constraints on the computational performance of security constrained unit commitment (SCUC). Binary variables are in general required due to mutual exclusiveness of charging and discharging modes. We use valid inequalities to improve the SOC constraints. Adding batteries to the MISO day ahead market … Read more

Adaptable Energy Management System for Smart Buildings

This paper presents a novel adaptable energy management system for smart buildings. In this framework we model the energy consumption of a living unit, and its energy exchange with the surroundings. We explicitly consider the impact of the outside environment and design features such as building orientation, automatic shading, and double facade. We formulate this … Read more

On Electricity Market Equilibria with Storage: Modeling, Uniqueness, and a Distributed ADMM

We consider spot-market trading of electricity including storage operators as additional agents besides producers and consumers. Storages allow for shifting produced electricity from one time period to a later one. Due to this, multiple market equilibria may occur even if classical uniqueness assumptions for the case without storages are satisfied. For models containing storage operators, … Read more
