Title :  Utilization of Mathematical Programming Solver in the Operation Scheduling of Electric Power Supply  

Abstract : 
We introduce a system where mathematical programming (MP) solver is utilized for optimizing the operation scheduling of many thermal power generators. The operation scheduling can be modeled as a largescale MP where the objective function of fuel cost is minimized under various complicated constraints. The MP is difficult to solve in reasonable time and computational resources, which makes nonpractical for the actual operation. We then develop a fast and approximation method, by solving mixedinteger quadratic programming problems iteratively using MP solver.
