We consider the problem of determining an optimal strategy for electricity injection that faces an uncertain power demand stream. This demand stream is modeled via an Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process with an additional jump component, whereas the power flow is represented by the linear transport equation. We analytically determine the optimal amount of power supply for different levels of available information and compare the results to each other. For numerical purposes, we reformulate the original problem in terms of the cost function such that classical optimization solvers can be directly applied. The computational results are illustrated for different scenarios.
