An approach to determine generation shift keys (GSKs) for defined market areas

An approach to determine generation shift keys (GSKs) for defined market areas

Generation shift keys (GSKs) describe how a change of the net position of a market area affects the power outputs of the generation units within the area. In other words, the GSK describes how the change of the net position is mapped to the different generation units. Transmission system operators (TSOs) use GSKs for various…

An energy storage model to analyze the energy arbitrage potential in a day-ahead electricity market

An energy storage model to analyze the energy arbitrage potential in a day-ahead electricity market

In this post, I discuss an energy storage model to analyze the energy arbitrage potential in a day-ahead electricity market. Energy arbitraging takes advantage of the price variations in the market where energy is bought at low prices and sold at high prices, thereby producing a profit. However, the profit depends on several factors, such…
