Abstract

Preventive security-constrained optimal power flow (PSCOPF) dispatches controllable generators at minimum cost while ensuring that the system adheres to all operating constraints. All the transmission and generation limits are respected during both the pre- and post-contingency states without relying on post-contingency redispatch. Therefore, all credible generation contingencies should be modeled in PSCOPF and the system-wide automatic primary response should be allocated accordingly among synchronized generators by adjusting their droop coefficients. This paper proposes a new PSCOPF model that optimizes the droop coefficients of the synchronized generators. The cost savings attained with the proposed approach and its computational performance are evaluated. Different wind penetration levels and reserve policies are tested using annual simulations on the one- and three-area IEEE Reliability Test System.
