## A fully mixed-integer linear programming formulation for economic dispatch with valve-point effects, transmission loss and prohibited operating zones

Economic dispatch (ED) problem considering valve-point effects (VPE), transmission loss and prohibited operating zones (POZ) is a very challenging issue due to its intrinsic non-convex, non-smooth and non-continuous natures. To achieve a near globally solution, a fully mixed-integer linear programming (FMILP) formulation is proposed for such an ED problem. Since the original loss function is … Read more
