This paper deals with dynamic optimal power flow (DOPF) considering geothermal power plant under take or pay (TOP) contract. As located in ring of fire, Indonesia has high potential of geothermal resources. Therefore, geothermal power plant becomes promising solution of power shortage in Indonesia. However, it takes high investment cost to develop geothermal power plant. In order to attract the investors to spend their money in developing geothermal power plant, the Indonesian government applies take or pay scheme in buying electric power from geothermal unit. This scheme is aimed to ensure cost recovery of the unit. When applying take or pay scheme, system operator may use DOPF formulation to make daily operation planning. The DOPF problem is solved using Matlab-based quadratic programming (QP). Then, IEEE 30 bus system is employed as tested system to show the effectiveness of the …
