Abstract [en]

The goal of this project was to calculate how much wind power could be balanced with hydro power in our designated area consisting of five hydro power stations, four villages which consume power, possible locations for wind power and one connection to the national grid. To achieve this a simulation model was constructed in the GAMS software with the goal of achieving the maximum profit from the hydro power plants by considering electricity prices, inflow of water, the physical construction of the power plants and the time of year. When this was achieved, restriction for the maximum transmission load on the power grid was added as well as local wind power production as to simulate the implementation of new power sources on an old system and power grid. This would result in a maximum income in SEK as well as the most wind power which could be maintained and balanced by the designated system. This project shows how to find the optimal way to use hydro power and wind power as well as how the integration between different sources of electricity production could work, which is vital for a future powered by renewable energy and will help towards lowering emissions.
