Navigating the secheduling of generation resources of energy in power systems marked by a significant presence of renewable generation involves intricate optimization challenges. The conventional tools for resolving such challenges include programming techniques and heuristic approaches, both contingent upon a precisely articulated target function for optimization. Traditional optimization tools rely on precisely defined target functions, but the evolving landscape of power systems introduces complexity, especially with unpredictable behaviors of renewable sources. The research specifically quantifies penalty costs associated with photovoltaic (PV) generators, employing probabilistic methods for a robust mathematical analysis. The developed analytical model enhances adaptability in economic dispatch problems, considering uncertainty in decision-making. Validation using Monte Carlo simulation emphasizes uncertainty in PV generation and highlights the advantages of the proposed analytic model. The quadratic form of the model aligns coherently with simulation outcomes, contributing significantly to understanding uncertainty quantification in solar power modeling. The research aims to refine controllable solar power models, establish robust uncertainty cost functions, and improve the accuracy of economic dispatch strategies. Ultimately, this work promotes the seamless integration of solar energy into diverse and dynamic energy grids.
