Due to the depletion of fossil resources and the increase in carbon dioxide emissions, renewable energy systems (RESs) such as photovoltaic (PV) and wind generator (WG) have become an active player in power systems (PSs). In Japan, diesel generators (DGs) are the means of power generation in most isolated islands. Therefore, the introduction of RESs into these islands is of great importance. However, due to the uncertainty of RESs, battery energy storage systems (BESSs), fuel cells (FCs) and exploiting the electric vehicles (EVs) owned by customers are expected as vital power sources for the next generation. Moreover, demand response programs are utilized in this paper. As a result of reforming PSs in recent years, transactions on power markets have also been increasing in Japan. The Japan electric power exchange provides day-ahead market, intraday hour-ahead market, and forward market. It is expected that these markets make it possible to deal with uncertainties related to the generated power fluctuation. This paper presents the optimal operation method for multi-area PSs consisting of DG, PV, WG, BESS and FC by using chance-constrained programming. The proposed method has achieved reduction of the total operational cost of the multi-area small power systems by using FC, household EVs and two power markets.
