Grid Integration and Market Analysis of Adjustable-Speed Pumped Storage Hydropower

Research output: NRELPresentation

Abstract

Variable renewable energy is increasing, affecting variability and range of energy prices and requiring extra power system flexibility. Adjustable-speed pumped storage hydropower (AS-PSH), can provide value to ancillary service markets and take benefit of energy arbitrage. Present results from production cost models showing the effects of adding 50 MW of AS-PSH to three Independent System Operators (ISOs).
