This paper proposes a stochastic model for the scheduling of short-term AC security-constrained unit commitment (AC-SCUC) considering reliability and the value of lost load (VOLL). The uncertainty of load and wind power generation, active and reactive power losses, voltage profile of the network’ buses and congestion management for different VOLLs are investigated in this paper. Furthermore, the random outages of generating unit and transmission lines are modeled based on the scenario trees in the Monte Carlo simulation and the reserve requirements of the power system are implicitly scheduled based on the VOLL and by considering corrective actions of the generation units. A computationally efficient two-stage algorithm based on bender's decomposition is proposed to solve the proposed problem. The first stage deals with the base case where all the network components, the units' outputs and on/off status can be determined based on the forecasting load and wind farms' output. The second stage investigates the stochastic part of the problem and runs the possible scenarios in parallel for all the network elements and the available units of the base case. In the case of any violation for a scenario, a bender's cut is added to the first stage which modifies the commitment state and the power units' outputs in order to tackle the violation for that scenario. The method is applied to the IEEE 118/300-bus test system to assess its applicability and capability.
