Using Probabilistic Forecasts in Stochastic Optimization
In the coming years, the energy system will be transformed from central carbon-based power plants to decentralized renewable generation. Due to the dependency of these systems on external influences such as the weather, forecast uncertainties pose a problem. In this paper, we will compare different methods that mitigate the impact of these forecast uncertainties. Our results suggest that estimating these uncertainties and modeling them for optimization can increase the benefit for the individual system.
