Welcome to Electricity Market Analytics


This course provides a detailed description of decision-making tools for electricity markets, addressing the perspectives of the market operator, producers, retailers, and consumers. These tools rely on stochastic optimization, and complementarity theory. The topics covered include market clearing algorithms, offering strategies for producers and stochastic producers, investment models for transmission and generation facilities and energy procurement strategies for retailers and consumers.

Topics include:

1 Electricity market organization

2 Market clearing algorithms

3 Market clearing algorithms with stochastic producers

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
