Water-related modelling in electric power systems: WATERFLEX Exploratory Research Project


This report comprises the water-constrained models in electric power systems developed within the WATERFLEX Exploratory Research Project of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in order to analyse the water-power interactions. The version 1 of the medium-term hydrothermal coordination module is presented with some modelling extensions, namely the incorporation of transmission network constraints, water demands, and ecological flows. Another salient feature of this version of Dispa-SET is the modelling of the stochastic medium-term hydrothermal coordination problem.
