Electricity and Power

This page contains a simple example of an energy mix generation model and a more extensive suite of models to facilitate optimal power flows.

Energy Mix Problem

What kind of energy mix do you need to satisfy loads in a number of scenarios? Every day, electricity providers must use the electricity generators in their fleet to meet demand every second of the day. With significant simplifying assumptions made, this application will allow users to design their own fleet of generators and cost parameters in order to determine the least cost way to meet demand on an hourly basis. The model will schedule when to use different types of generators for one day of the year and a specific mix of generation sources.

Optimal Power Flow

The Optimal Power Flow (OPF) model represents the problem of determining the best operating levels for electric power plants in order to meet demands given throughout a transmission network, usually with the objective of minimizing operating cost.
