Proposal and Preliminary Study on Installed Capacity Margin
The capacity of thermal power plants takes up 75 per cent of whole power generation capacity in China, and so a reserve of generation capacity margin that may adapt to the variations in power network load is of paramount importance. This paper proposes a concept: installed capacity margin, and basic mathematic modeling and example is analyzed. It would be supply theoretical help for real little thermal power plants shutdown schedules based on building detailed mathematical models after investigation of region-specific load structure characteristics and installed generator compositions.
