In a multimarket environment, a GENCO produces electricity subject to a number of factors, including physical and environmental constraints, together with trading strategies in the electricity market (EM), fuel market (FM) and carbon market (CM). To assist a GENCO to maximize its profits from EM, FM and CM, this paper proposes a dynamic decision making model with two consecutive stages. Fuzzy differential evolution algorithm is used to solve this decision-making problem. Taking transactions in the three interactive markets into account, the proposed model has been tested for a GENCO consisting of seven thermal units and a wind farm. A rational tradeoff between the profit-making and emission reduction has been demonstrated by the GENCO using the proposed model, indicating a well alignment with the intended goal of the introducing emission trading scheme (ETS). © 2013 British Crown Copyright.
