The focus of HYDROPOWER ECONOMICS is to provide qualitative economic analyses of how to utilize stored water in a hydropower system with fixed generating capacities. The problem is dynamic because water used today to generate electric power may alternatively be used tomorrow. The distinctive feature of this book is to provide a social planning perspective on the optimal use of water. This is a prerequisite for understanding and evaluating newly-established electricity markets.

Produktbeschreibung
The focus of HYDROPOWER ECONOMICS is to provide qualitative economic analyses of how to utilize stored water in a hydropower system with fixed generating capacities. The problem is dynamic because water used today to generate electric power may alternatively be used tomorrow. The distinctive feature of this book is to provide a social planning perspective on the optimal use of water. This is a prerequisite for understanding and evaluating newly-established electricity markets. The dynamic nature of hydropower production, the high number of units involved, and the inherent stochastic nature of inflow of water make optimization problems quite difficult technically to solve. In the engineering literature complex stochastic dynamic programming models are used and solution algorithms developed for real-life data, with numerical solutions provided. In this book a much more simplified mathematical approach suited to obtain qualitative conclusions is followed. Standard nonlinear programming models for discrete time are used and the Kuhn - Tucker conditions employed extensively for qualitative interpretations. A special graphical presentation, termed a bathtub diagram, is developed for two-period illustration. TOC:Introduction.- Water as a natural resource.- Hydropower with reservoir.- Multiple producers.- Mix of thermal- and hydropower plants.- Trade.- Transmission.- Market power.- Uncertainty.- Summary and conclusions.- References.- Index.

Rezensionen
Aus den Rezensionen: "Seit jeher können Wasserkraftanlagen nicht singulär betrachtet warden [sic], sondern müssen im Gesamtkontext von einerseits den naturgegebenen Möglichkeiten des Wasserdargebotes und ggf. dessen Speicherung sowie andererseits der Stromabnehmer in Verbindung mit dem Stromversorgungsnetz betrachtet werden. In dem neuen Fachbuch widmet sich ein Ökonom systematisch diesen Fragen, indem er ausgehend von einer Einzelanlage deren wesentliche energiewirtschaftliche Kenngrößen mit betriebswirtschaftlichen Ansätzen erläutert ..." (in: WasserWirtschaft, 2008, Issue 6, S. 53)
From the reviews:

"This book claims that if one is to correctly comprehend deregulation in electricity markets, then one must first develop an appreciation for the optimal use of hydro and thermal power. ... this book would have profited from a thorough review of the extant literature. ... it is important to note that the author deals well with his selected topics. ... I recommend this book to all readers who wish to learn more about the economics of hydroelectric power." (Amitrajeet A. Batabyal, Interfaces, Vol. 39 (1), January-February, 2009)
