The economic impact of forecasting errors in the residual demand curves of the secondary regulation reserve market is analysed in the context of the operation of a closed-loop and daily-cycle pumped-storage hydropower plant. The plant participates in the day-ahead energy market as a price-taker and in the secondary regulation reserve market as a price-maker. The secondary regulation energy due to the real-time use of the committed reserves is also considered in the optimization model. The results show that profit is significantly more sensitive to forecast errors in the day-ahead energy market prices than in the residual demand curves of the secondary regulation reserve market.
