Behboodi, S., Chassin, D. P., Djilali, N., & Crawford, C. (2017). Interconnection-wide hour-ahead scheduling in the presence of intermittent renewables and demand response: A surplus maximizing approach. Applied Energy, 189, 336-351.


It’s a new approach for solving the multi-area electricity resource allocation problem when considering both intermittent renewables and demand response. The method determines the hourly inter-area export/import set that maximizes the interconnection (global) surplus satisfying transmission, generation and load constraints.
