Mixed Integer Linear Programming Of Power Systems With Free Software

Alejandro S. Guerrero Hernandez , Javier E. Sierra and Jose L. Lopez Prado


Computing tools applied in power systems are increasingly used to solve complex optimization problems. Power system operations research has become essential for graduate and final-year undergraduate students who want to improve their knowledge in this area. This study proposes a solution for a group of boilers and turbines to minimize operating costs using GUSEK software. The execution of the model allows us to obtain the optimal solution with the operational constraints involved and the possibility of improving with metaheuristic algorithms.
