Strategic Bidding in Price Coupled Regions: risk and uncertainty
Supervisors : Luce Brotcorne, Bernard Fortz, Bernardo Pagnoncelli
Location : INRIA Lille, INOCS Team
Description of the project
Liberalization of electricity markets and new technologies are having a strong influence on how to organize electricity production and transmission.
In this project, we consider the Bidding Problem (BP) of a GC (Generation Company) maximizing its profit in coupled day-ahead markets. The production of the GC is considered high enough to impact the market prices. The model defined in (1) integrates a detailed Unit Commitment (UC) formulation of the production planning problem.
The goal of this project consists in relaxing the assumption made in (1) that the bids of the competitor are known in advance. More precisely, the first step is to propose stochastic models for bids of the competitors to capture different dependencies (spatial, economic, regional, etc). Second, the randomness has to be incorporated into the optimization framework. In particular, a risk measure has to be added to the formulation to deal with the random parameters that were introduced. The choice will be guided by the need of a risk measure that captures risk aversion of the GC, while at the same time maintaining the structure of the problem so it can be efficiently solved for realistic instances.
The work can be divided into three parts:
The work will be accompanied and supervised throughout the duration of the internship by Luce Brotcorne, Bernard Fortz and Bernardo Pagnoncelli.
The work would be submitted for presentation to a conference
- Knowledge in Linear programming, mixed-integer linear programming
- Computational experience in numerical optimization is a must.
- While the focus of the work will be in decision making under uncertainty/stochastic programming, no prior knowledge is needed to work in this project. Familiarity with classical models such as two-stage and chance-constrained programming is a plus.
The internship will last 3 months to 6 months.
