Hydropower information for power system modelling: the JRC-EFAS-Hydropower dataset

Matteo De Felice

Published: 2020-10-22
Subjects: Power and Energy, Water Resource Management

Hydropower plays a very important role in European power systems. Consequently, any power system model aiming to reproduce the behaviour of current and future European power systems should include an accurate representation of the natural variability of water availability, i.e. the amount of water that can be transformed into energy. The JRC-EFAS-Hydropower dataset contains the weekly [...]

Tidal range power plants represent an attractive approach for the large-scale generation of electricity from the marine environment. Even though the tides and by extension the available energy resource are predictable, they are also variable in time. This variability poses a challenge regarding the optimal transient control of power plants. Here we consider simulation methods which include the [...]

Comparison of 0-D, 1-D and 2-D model capabilities for tidal range energy resource assessments

Tidal range energy projects present an attractive means for the predictable and large-scale generation of electricity from the marine environment. In particular, proposals are under consideration in UK waters, with their feasibility currently being under high levels of scrutiny. This is due to a combination of potential environmental and socio-economic impacts that are challenging to quantify in [...]
