Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of renewable energy sources makes it possible to reduce the consumption of traditional hydrocarbon energy carriers, which is a global priority direction for the development of science and technology. The integration of renewable energy sources (RES) into power grids is a significant global trend impacting various problems in specific conditions of particular countries. To operate RES more reliably and affordably, new digital decisions need to be proposed. The implementation of DT in RES to manage their day-to-day operations and optimize performance increases efficiency and speeds up the binding target of the EU outlining that the share of electricity produced by renewables must grow to 50% by 2030.

The aim of this Special issue is to study the digitalization of Renewable Energy Sources (RES), creating Digital Twins (DTs), supporting the balancing of the power grid and increasing the flexibility of the energy system, possible through dispatchable renewable energy sources.

For this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Implementation of renewable energy sources
  • Analysis of available technical means
  • Development of technological schemes implementation RES in the power grid
  • Simulation photovoltaic system
  • Conditions for stable operation of microgrids together with centralized networks;
  • Formation of practical recommendations for the construction of energy supply systems of multi-purpose objects based on renewable energy.
  • Model microgrid with renewable energy sources
  • DT microgrid and RES
  • Formation of optimal parameters of the power supply system according to the criterion of cost minimization and energy efficiency
  • Developing the composition of equipment (the number, type, and location of electrical modules, inverters, and storage systems, taking into account the terrain and meteorological conditions)
  • Using modern software for simulation RES
  • Degradation PV module

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

With the development of the electricity spot market, pumped-storage power stations are faced with the problem of realizing flexible adjustment capabilities and limited profit margins under the current two-part electricity price system. At the same time, the penetration rate of new energy has increased. Its uncertainty has brought great pressure to the operation of the power system. The ramp market and its market mechanism have emerged as the times require. To this end, this article proposes a bidding strategy for pumped-storage power stations to participate in multi-level markets such as the ramp market. Considering the demand calculation of ramping services, a two-layer model of pumped storage’s participation in multiple markets is constructed. The upper level makes trading decisions with the goal of maximizing pumped-storage revenue; the lower level aims to minimize the total social cost and jointly clears the primary and auxiliary markets. The income from pumped storage participating in the main energy and ramp-up auxiliary markets at the same time is significantly higher than the income from the two-part electricity price system. Its flexible adjustment ability can be quantified, reducing dependence on capacity electricity charges and providing a theoretical reference for cost recovery and profitability of future pumped-storage power stations.
