7 Director's greeting Dear Friend, Another year, it is with much pleasure and satisfaction that I present the annual report of the work carried out in the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT) of the ICAI School of Engineering at the Comillas Pontifical University. This document - a record of a year of effort and dedication on the part of our research staff - is proof indeed of the position we have been able to consolidate, both nationally and internationally, in our chosen areas of research. It describes a situation which attests both to the strength of the institute s research teams, who also make an important contribution to our ambitious and internationally-oriented doctoral programs, and to the continuing success of our collaboration with the industrial sector, which turned thirty years during the past academic year. All of the activity described in this report would not have been possible without the work and commitment of all the professionals in the institute: teachers, researchers, administrative staff, post-graduate students and representatives of the industrial sector. If the work of the IIT has become an international benchmark in its areas of research, it is without doubt entirely their achievement. Our goal now is to build on our success and advance further in our areas of expertise. This we hope to achieve though our continuing commitment and our professionalism, a professionalism which will enable us to continue to enjoy the confidence of those national and international companies and organizations with whom we collaborate, in particular the ICAI School of Engineering itself, the Comillas Pontifical University, and ICAI Engineers Association, for whose valuable support we would like to express our gratitude. We wish to continue to earn this confidence by dint of our efforts to produce qualified professionals who are highly sought after by companies in the industrial sector, to encourage applied research which adds to the engineering knowledge base, and to pass on this knowledge so that it may be of use to society. We are conscious that this is a difficult challenge in the current global economic situation, especially in the energy sector, we face it with enthusiasm and commitment. I cordially invite you to get to know us better by reading these pages. Efraim Centeno Hernáez

January 2012-December Software products Electric generation system reliability model (FLOP Model) (http://www.iit.upcomillas.es/aramos/flop.htm) The model calculates the Expected Energy Non Served (EENS) and the Loss Of Load Probability (LOLP) for a prespecified set of periods in which the year is divided. It uses discrete convolution method. The input data for the model are: demand in each period, modelled as a chronological or load-duration curve, and generating units in each period: effective output in peak hours and availability rate. Generators are dispatched to supply demand in increasing merit order given a price ladder (although this order is irrelevant for reliability purposes). Price has only informative effects while a reserve bid system isn't available. The results given by the model: for each period value of EENS, LOLP and price (only for the clearing process of power reserve bids), graphs of EENS and LOLP 74

83 IIT Annual Report evolution along the time, and graph of resulting price in each period. Bulk production cost model (StarNet Model) (http://www.iit.upcomillas.es/aramos/starnet.htm) A bulk production cost model determines the system operation variables that minimize variable costs for a defined time scope. The model determines the unit commitment binary variables and furthermore the unit output and power flow through the network. It is a short and medium term model. In the short term demand is modeled chronologically, while in the medium term it considered as a load-duration curve. It can also be considered as a medium term Bulk Production Cost Model (BCPM) to obtain economic and unit operation forecasts. Reliability and Operation Model for renewable energy sources (ROM Model) (http://www.iit.upcomillas.es/aramos/rom.htm) The model objective is to determine technical and economic impact of intermittent generation (IG) and other types of emerging technologies (active demand response, electric vehicles, concentrated solar power, solar photovoltaic) into the medium-term system operation including reliability assessment. Results include generation output including IG surplus, pumped storage and storage hydro usage, and adequacy reliability measures. The benefits of improving IG predictions can also be determined by changing forecasting error distributions and re-running the model. A daily stochastic optimization model followed by a sequential hourly simulation. Detailed operation constraints such as minimum load, ramp-rate, minimum up-time and downtime of thermal units and power reserve provision are included into the daily stochastic unit commitment model. The hourly simulation is run for the same day to account for IG production errors and unit failure and therefore revising the previous schedule. This system modeling in two phases reproduces the usual decision mechanism of the system operator. A chronological approach to sequentially evaluate every day of a year. Decisions above this scope as the weekly scheduling of pumped storage hydro plants are done internally in the model by heuristic criteria. Yearly hydro scheduling of storage hydro platns is done by higher hierarchy models, as for example, a hydrothermal coordination model. Monte Carlo simulation of many yearly scenarios that deal with IG stochasticity. AGC software for the Spanish power system v2.0.1 AGC software adapted to the Spanish Power System that outperforms other current commercial alternatives. The software can be easily integrated in any complete SCADA system.
