Graphical Abstract:


Background: With respect to the problem of wind power and photovoltaic (PV) gridconnected accommodation, a power system optimization dispatching method is proposed that introduces a concentrating solar power (CSP) station to promote wind power and PV accommodation, considering the dispatch-ability of the thermal storage system (TSS) and the accommodation capacity of the electric heating device (EHD) in the CSP station.

Methods: The method analyzes an internal simplified model of a CSP station and a short-timescale identification method of wind and PV power ramping events based on a CSP-Wind-PV system structure. Furthermore, the operating characteristics and constraints of various units are considered with the goal of the lowest comprehensive system cost to establish a CSP-Wind-PV optimization model for dispatching power system.

Results: The method is simulated and verified on the IEEE-RTS24 node system by using the MATLAB optimization toolbox.

Conclusion: The results demonstrate that the participation of a CSP station can decrease the number of power ramping events and reduce the curtailment of wind and PV power while ensuring the economical operation of the power system.

Keywords: Concentrating solar power (CSP) station, wind power and photovoltaic (PV) accommodation, power ramping event, CSP-Wind-PV optimization model.
