This discussion focused on how system operators balance supply and demand when they have high penetrations of wind and solar on their system. We discussed the unit commitment process and options for intra-day unit commitment and coordinated unit commitment. We discussed the economic dispatch process and options for coordinated economic dispatch. We will also discuss forecasting for load, wind and solar, and how forecasts can be used in operations.
