The Hungarian Transmission System Operator Company Ltd. established the Compulsory Receipt (KÁT) balance group primarily for promoting renewable energy production. Until July of 2010 fossile cogeneration technology was also included in this balance group. The aid for renewable energy producers is based on the KÁT official discount prices to take over power production from producers.
The producers plan their energy production every month and they are obliged to send data to the responsible person of the balance group. They have to estimate the amount of energy (in quarter hour breakdowns) that will be generated in the future. Finally, the delivery profile is created for one month, using the sum of the incoming predicted data and they perform the energy allocation among the energy traders.
The aim of my thesis is to describe the allocation procedure with special regard to the preparation of the delivery profile. After the introduction (background knowledge and literature research) I take the opportunity to describe how to develop the present method.
The “KÁT” balance group is expected to undergo major changes soon. This conversion is mainly due to the fact that the “KÁT” balance group has a high cost of balancing energy and market integration. The model, which has already been introduced in Germany, is called the “lineprofile” model. The new Hungarian system would be a meaningful change: they would sell the extra energy produced at the Hungarian Power Exchange (HUPX) energy stock market. After some mathematical analysis the second part of my thesis will deal with the settings of the Hungarian „lineprofile”. An interactive program provides an opportunity, on the basis of statistical data to create a delivery profile that will continue to support renewable technologies, while minimizing the cost of balancing energy. The result of my thesis work is an optimum which will be displayed on graphical figures.
