POWER GENERATION OPTIMAL DISPATCH MODEL WITH CROSS-BORDER EXCHANGE MODEL FORMULATION

In this paper a model for optimal hydro-thermal coordination of a power system is proposed when contracts for power import and export power are available. The power flows outside the localized area of the local power system are divided into planned and planned quantities in order to assign different penalties for them in the cost criterion. The model also introduces the work of thermal and hydro power plants by separating each unit with a linear approximation. The resulting model is a mixed-integer linear programming problem.
