A Dual Approximate Dynamic Programming Approach to Multi-stage Stochastic Unit Commitment

We study the multi-stage stochastic unit commitment problem in which commitment and generation decisions can be made and adjusted in each time period. We formulate this problem as a Markov decision process, which is “weakly-coupled” in the sense that if the demand constraint is relaxed, the problem decomposes into a separate, low-dimensional, Markov decision process … Read more
