Benefits of Chronological Optimization in Capacity Planning for Electricity Markets
| By Energy Exemplar
Long-term capacity expansion planning is constrained by computing performance; hence the load duration curve (LDC) approach is commonly adopted for such long-term models. In this paper chronology is retained in deterministic modelling of long-term investment decisions along with an accurate production cost model co-optimization that accounts for inter-temporal constraints of thermal plants. The South Australian system has been modelled in the PLEXOS® simulation software.

Network Constraints for Competing Renewable Power Plants in a Resource Rich Area
| By Energy Exemplar
Significant growth in installed capacity of solar PV and wind generation has taken place globally with the largest contributors being the USA, Europe (mostly Germany) and China. Projections for solar PV and wind generation capacity seem to indicate that this growth will continue into the future.

Australian Power: Can Renewable Technologies Change the Dominant Industry View?
| By Energy Exemplar
The Australian government is committed to the development of its coal seam gas resources for export to lucrative world markets and to transition domestic power generation to greater resilience by moving away from a reliance on coal to lower-emissions intensive gas. Using a commercially available modelling package, PLEXOS, we model what a transition to gas fired generation in the year 2035 would deliver and compare that to a transition to power from renewable technologies.

Analysing the Effects of Future Generation and Grid Investments on the Spanish Power Market, with Large-Scale Wind Integration, Using PLEXOS® for Power Systems
| By Energy Exemplar
The scope of this paper is to present the results of a wind integration case study that analyses and compares the effects of the future generation and grid investments and their operations on power market prices, congestion, ancillary service requirements and generation mix using the power market simulation and analysis software PLEXOS® for Power Systems.

An Economic Evaluation of the Potential for Distributed Energy in Australia
| By Energy Exemplar
We present here economic findings from a major study by Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) on the value of distributed energy technologies (DE; collectively demand management, energy efficiency and distributed generation) for reducing green-house gas emissions from Australia’s energy sector.

AEMO Releases PLEXOS NEM Dataset
| By Energy Exemplar
The Australian Energy Market Operator ('AEMO') operates the wholesale interconnected electricity market in the eastern states, known as the National Electricity Market, or NEM. For the National Transmission Network Development Plan (NTNDP) 2012, AEMO released a copy of 2012 NTNDP Database in PLEXOS. PLEXOS was used to solve the Least-Cost Expansion Modelling requirements of their analysis.

How Much Wind Energy Will be Curtailed on the 2020 Irish Power System?
| By Energy Exemplar
This paper describes a model of the 2020 Irish electricity system which was developed and solved in a mixed integer programming, unit commitment and economic dispatch tool called PLEXOS. The model includes all generators on the island of Ireland, a simplified representation of the neighbouring British system including proposed wind capacity and interconnectors between the two systems.

Electrical Energy Storage to Make Wind and Solar PV Resources Disptatchable
| By Energy Exemplar
The transitioning to a lower carbon emissions path in most regions of the world has driven significant investments in alternative renewable sources of electrical energy with particular focus on solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind technologies. The typical argument against these technologies are issues related to their variability and unpredictability and management thereof. This paper attempts to show the value that electrical energy storage could add to a power system that includes a share of solar PV and wind. More specifically, the ability of energy storage to make these intermittent resources dispatchable.
