Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to generate a deeper understanding of the representation of hydropower in long-term models. This is done by mapping and modelling (cascading) hydropower in Sweden with the Open Source energy MOdelling SYStem (OSeMOSYS). The first part of the thesis builds on a literature review and provides an introduction to hydropower in Sweden. The second part focuses on implementing the storage equations in OSeMOSYS. These are applied by modelling hydropower at various levels of detail to evaluate the result when the depth of detail of the storage modelling is increased. First, a model of Sweden without hydropower storage is modelled. Then, two models were set up which include storage; one with one hydropower storage for all of Sweden, one with nine rivers with storage. Finally, two models considering cascading hydropower with storage were developed; where the first is an expansion of the model with one storage for all of Sweden and the second model examine two rivers more thorough. The remain-ing power system is represented in a stylised fashion, compliant with prevailing long-term energy modelling techniques. The implications of the different levels of detail are compared and discussed. The comparisons show that it is important to consider the lev-el of detail when looking at the short-term effects of long-term energy models.
