The power system operators are facing significant challenges in the operation due to the increasing penetration level of renewable energy sources (RESs). The flexibility from the district heating system (DHS) is attracting considerable interest to deal with RES uncertainty. This paper formulates a distributionally robust chance-constrained (DRCC) optimization model of the integrated electricity and heating system (IEHS) dispatch to hedge the uncertainty of RES and exploit the flexibility of the DHS. In particular, the uncertainty from the electrical power system (EPS) is propagated to the DHS so that both systems can respond to the uncertainty of RES. The uncertainty of the wind power is modeled by an ambiguity set, which defines a family of probability distributions with the same first and second-moment property. Real-time regulation actions of both the EPS and DHS to respond to the wind power forecast errors are modeled through the data-driven affine control policies. To achieve computational tractability, the proposed DRCC model is reformulated as a second-order cone program (SOCP). The simulation results tested on the integrated six-bus and seven-node system demonstrate that the proposed DRCC model outperforms the chance-constraints dispatch based on Gaussian distribution for the secure operation of the IEHS.
