This body of work is dedicated to the modeling and assessment of initiatives within electricity markets using the underlying hourly market dynamics. The dissertation presents two separate frameworks that take a bottom-up approach for assessing benefits associated with various demand-side initiatives and other emerging interventions in power markets. Models in support of each framework are presented, and numerical results are used to highlight some impacts based on hourly dynamics.The analysis will contrast two storage technologies, compressed air energy storage (CAES) and the Sodium Sulfur ... During discharge, natural gas is used to heat the compressed air, which is then expanded through a turbine to produce work.
