Peaking Equation
#1
Hello,
I was wondring why CHP process are not participating in the electricity peaking reserve equation by their Capacity.
Thanks you for your response.

It is so by default, because 1) crediting by capacity would be a bit dangerous, as the capacity of CHP processes may be modeled in different ways, and 2) "back-pressure" type of CHP plants typically cannot be "regulated" sufficiently for being credited with their electrical capacity (they can only produce when there is sufficient heat demand).  But for pass-out turbine plants modeled with electrical capacity one could well assume contribution by Capacity, and you can define that by setting PRC_PKAF for the process.  You can then use NCAP_PKCNT for overriding AF as the contribution factor.

Dear Antti,
Thank you for your reply. In my case I am working only on the electricity sector with a heat demand equal to zero. I have some observations:

First, I converted all the CHP process to the ELC group and deleting the CHPR parameter, but the problem remains (CHP are participating with their VAR_FLO not VAR_NCAP). I think this is due to the fact that a process producing two commodities will automatically participates by its VAR_FLO. For example a Hydro process producing ELCHIG and ELCMED also particpate with the VAR_FLO (the same thing as a CHP process producing ELCHIG and HEAT).



I applied your method activating the PRC_PKAF and using the NCA_PKCNT=1, and it works.



The vintiaging method used in the equation, add some VAR_FLO to the equation for the CHP process.  For example for the 2045 peaking equation I have this additional lines:

Also, in the equation the base_year investments PASTI are not represented as variables. Are they represented in the right-hand side  (Sum(varibles)>-RHS = base_year participation).


The last observation, is about the transformers process HIGH_MED and MED_LOW. I set a capacity credit of 0, but in the equation they participate with VAR_ACT ?


Thank you

Thanks for the follow-up.

Yes, if the PCG of a process contains more than one commodity, such a process by default contributes to the peaking equation by the output only. I am glad you found the PRC_PKAF working.

I am not aware of the situation where some VAR_FLOs would be added to the equation for CHP processes, even if PRC_PKAF is used. Maybe you can give more info about the conditions under which this may occur?

Yes, any existing capacities are included in the constant term.

I think you should use PRC_PKNO for excluding processes from the peaking equation (and do not set NCAP_PKCNT).

I just tested with a vintaged CHP process, using PRC_PKAF.  I am not seeing any VAR_FLO terms in the peaking equation for it; only VAR_NCAP terms (contributing by capacity) as expected.  So, I cannot confirm you findings about some VAR_FLO being added to the equation for a CHP process.
