João P. S. Catalão received the M.Sc. degree from the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon, Portugal, in 2003, and the Ph.D. degree and Habilitation for Full Professor ("Agregação") from the University of Beira Interior (UBI), Covilha, Portugal, in 2007 and 2013, respectively. Currently, he is a Professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), Porto, Portugal, and Researcher at INESC TEC, INESC-ID/IST-UL, and C-MAST/UBI. He was the Primary Coordinator of the EU-funded FP7 project SiNGULAR ("Smart and Sustainable Insular Electricity Grids Under Large-Scale Renewable Integration"), a 5.2-million-euro project involving 11 industry partners. He has authored or coauthored more than 500 publications, including 171 journal papers, 303 conference proceedings papers, 29 book chapters, and 14 technical reports, with an h-index of 30 and over 3735 citations (according to Google Scholar), having supervised more than 45 post-docs, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students. He is the Editor of the books entitled Electric Power Systems: Advanced Forecasting Techniques and Optimal Generation Scheduling and Smart and Sustainable Power Systems: Operations, Planning and Economics of Insular Electricity Grids (Boca Raton, FL, USA: CRC Press, 2012 and 2015, respectively). His research interests include power system operations and planning, hydro and thermal scheduling, wind and price forecasting, distributed renewable generation, demand response and smart grids. Prof. Catalão is an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy, an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, and an Associate Editor of the IET Renewable Power Generation. He was the Guest Editor-in-Chief for the Special Section on "Real-Time Demand Response" of the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, published in December 2012, and the Guest Editor-in-Chief for the Special Section on "Reserve and Flexibility for Handling Variability and Uncertainty of Renewable Generation" of the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy, published in April 2016. He was the recipient of the 2011 Scientific Merit Award UBI-FE/Santander Universities and the 2012 Scientific Award UTL/Santander Totta. Also, he has won 4 Best Paper Awards at IEEE Conferences.

Three-Level Hybrid Energy Storage Planning under Uncertainty

Abstract
In conventional hybrid energy storage systems, two storage units complement each other. One low-capacity and fast-response unit as power supplier, and one high-capacity and low-response unit as an energy supplier. The power supplier mitigates fast fluctuations in generation or demand by transferring energy over seconds or minutes, and the energy supplier transfers energy over hours for managing energy. The proposed planning results in a large-scale optimization programming that optimizes large numbers of design variables at the same time. In order to increase the flexibility of the planning, the initial energy of the storage units is also modelled as a design variable and optimized. The uncertainty of loads is modelled and a stochastic planning is carried out to solve the problem. The introduced three-level hybrid energy storage planning is simulated on two test systems, and the results demonstrate that the proposed planning can reduce the planning cost by about 1.8%. IEEE

Abstract
This paper proposes a stochastic decision making problem for a wind power producer (WPP) in the day-ahead (DA) and balancing markets. In this problem, bidding strategy of the WPP in a competitive electricity market and also its participation to supply demand response (DR) and electric vehicle (EV) aggregators is determined to achieve the maximum profit. In this model, DR and EV aggregators are able to choose the most competitive WPP in such a way that their energy payments be minimized in the scheduling horizon. Therefore, the problem is formulated as a stochastic bi-level programming model with conflict objectives of the WPP and the aggregators. Moreover, owing to the uncertainties associated with market prices, offered prices by rival WPPs, demand of DR and EV aggregators, conditional value at risk (CVaR) is applied to the proposed model. The attained stochastic bi-level problem is transformed to a linear stochastic single level problem with equilibrium constraints using Karush Kuhn Tucker (KKT) optimality conditions. The proposed model is evaluated on a realistic case study and the impacts of risk-averse behavior and demand response participants on the decision making problem of the WPP are investigated. Numerical results indicate that with increasing DR participants of 0%, 60% and 100%, CVaR of WPP increases 33.81%, 40.79% and 46.99%, respectively. This means that if the loads are more responsive, the WPP tries to control the profit variability due to the uncertainties of loads.
