Abstract

With the global trend to exploit more renewable energy sources, tidal range energy has been gaining more attention recently. This power generation technology is expected to reduce the share of fossil fuels and provide flexibility to the power system. With a pioneering tidal range generation project just granted in Wales and more proposals planned in Great Britain, it is important to study how the incorporation of multiple tidal range power stations will affect power system operation. In this paper, the role of tidal range energy generation in the future Great Britain power system is investigated based on a day-ahead scheduling model of power system incorporating multiple tidal range power stations. In the proposed model, tidal range power stations situated at different sites operate flexibly and in coordination, supporting the power system to reach the minimum operating cost. A case study based on the Great Britain electricity transmission system in 2030 with one tidal barrage and one tidal lagoon was investigated. The results showed that the coordination of flexible tidal range power stations can reduce the power system's operating cost. Furthermore, the energy-storage feature of tidal range power stations can act as a stable source of flexibility in the power system.
