Improvements for Decomposition Based Methods Utilized in the Development of Multi-Scale Energy Systems

The optimal design of large-scale energy systems can be found by posing the problem as an integrated multi-period planning and scheduling mathematical programming problem. Due to the complexity of the accompanying mathematical programming problem decomposition techniques are often required but they to are plagued with converge issues. To address these issues we have derived a … Read more

Solution Strategies for Integrated Distribution, Production, and Routing Problems Arising in Modular Manufacturing

Recently, there has been a paradigm shift by certain energy and chemical companies towards modular manufacturing, whereby transportable modular production units can be relocated between production facilities to meet the spatial and temporal changes in the availabilities, demands, and prices of the underlying commodities. We refer to the optimal distribution, production, and storage of commodities, … Read more
