Unit commitment approximations in generation and transmission planning: efficiency & accuracy

Benjamin F. Hobbs, S. Kasina, J. Ho, Sonja Wogrin

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Alternative tight relaxations of unit commitment problems that enable large planning models to be solved with operating subproblems that capture ramp, start-up, and pmin limits and costs. We examine their performance in the context of generation and transmission expansion models, including a stochastic programming analysis of the western interconnection of North America.
