Preliminary Results of Advanced Heuristic Optimization in the Risk-based Energy Scheduling Competition

  • 1. GECAD Research Center, Polytechnic of Porto Porto, Portugal


In this paper, multiple evolutionary algorithms are applied to solve an energy resource management problem in the day-ahead context involving a risk-based analysis corresponding to the proposed 2022 competition on evolutionary computation. We test numerous evolutionary algorithms for a risk-averse day-ahead operation to show preliminary results for the competition. We use evolutionary computation to follow the competition guidelines. Results show that the HyDE algorithm obtains a better solution with lesser costs when compared to the other tested algorithm due to the minimization of worst-scenario impact.
