Abstract

We consider optimal power-flow calculations based on statistics (means and variances) of wind-power that are assumed known hour ahead. In real-time, adjustments of these calculations to the true wind power amounts have been proposed using affine control and chance constraints on generation and transmission [1]. We study how correlated wind power sources affect the optimized power plan and cost. We also explore how the errors in wind forecasting statistics, due to real-time control actions to limit wind oscillations (ramping) or just simple misinformation, affect costs. There are direct extensions to the case where random/flexible demands/loads are correlated and similarly predictable.
