Due to their dependence on intermittent renewable energy sources, island power systems, which are generally located in remote places or on islands, offer particular issues for day-ahead scheduling. Using the capabilities of neural networks, we offer a Seq2Seq-based technique for day-ahead scheduling, which increases the precision and flexibility of unit commitment choices. The attention mechanisms in the Seq2Seq model are trained with historical data that includes projections for intermittent generation, demand, and unit commitment choices. The model is tested for its capacity to incorporate dynamic temporal relationships and deal with regenerative uncertainty. Seq2Seq models, a kind of deep learning approach, have shown impressive performance in several applications requiring sequence prediction. Uncertainty in renewable energy production, energy demand forecasts, and security limitations are all addressed in this work as Seq2Seq algorithms are applied to microgrid SCUC. In comparison to conventional scheduling approaches, the results show potential gains in prediction accuracy and operational efficiency. This study demonstrates how Seq2Seq models may be used to improve the longevity and dependability of isolated electrical grids and the way for the development of more effective, sustainable, and resilient energy infrastructure by contributing to the advancement of the area of microgrid optimization.
