Electricity Market Analysis, Graduate Course

The aim of the course is that the students learn methods and models for how the price is formed in an electricity market. The course comprises background information about possible ways to design an electricity market, impact from congestions, treatment of externalities such as methods to limit emissions, risk analysis and market power. Applied optimization is shown to be one suitable method to simulate market behaviour.
