Optimization Models and Methods Developed at the Energy Systems Institute
International Journal of Energy Optimization and Engineering (IJEOE),
The paper presents shortly some optimization models of energy system operation and expansion that have been created at the Energy Systems Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Consideration is given to the optimization models of energy development in Russia, a software package intended for analysis of power system reliability, and model of flow distribution in hydraulic systems. A general idea of the optimization methods developed at the Energy Systems Institute is given including the reduced gradient method, interior point algorithms, method of modified Lagrange function, and cutting-plane algorithms.
