Power plants withdraw a significant amount of cooling water for power generation. This talk will give an analysis on the impacts of the cooling water shortage on the electric power system operation, basing on a comprehensive model combining a power system operation model, a unit-level heat-balance based cooling water withdrawal model, and multi-level cooling water withdrawal availability constraints. A systematic evaluation of the state-over and regional impacts on the reliability, economics, generation schedules of the power system operations as well as the environment are detailed analyzed.


Ying Wang received the B.S. degree in Electric Engineering from the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2011, M.S. degree and Ph.D. from the Southeast University in 2014. She is currently a Lecturer at Southeast University, Nanjing, China. She was a Visiting Student at Argonne National Laboratory in 2016. Her research interests are power system operation and electricity market.
