T1 - A linear programming model of electric power production

AU - Tamminen, Eero

PY - 1986

Y1 - 1986

N2 - The report describes construction principles, structure,
applications and documentation of a linear programming
model of electric power production. The approach is
general, and it may be applied to any power system; here
it has been applied to the Finnish generation capacity.
The model is a part of a larger linear programming energy
model which is being developed by the author at the
Technical Research Centre of Finland. For independent use
it is documented here as a complete self-contained
model.The model is a static, deterministic model without
regional subdivision. The year has been divided into
subperiods in order to describe demand variations and
maintenance allocation within the year. However, this
does not make the model genuinely dynamic.
The whole emphasis lies on the resource allocation
structure as it is represented by the linear programming
matrix. In our opinion an approach to construct LP energy
and resource flow models should result in a clear,
geometric and documented picture of the flows of
resources in the real system, of the representation of
these flows in the linear programming model, and about
the approximations being made.
A static point model is always the basic building block
in dynamic and multiregion models. Extensions to models
which treat certain variables as integers, and to
decision-analytical models are also possible.
