Affine Decision Rule Approximation to Immunize against Demand Response Uncertainty in Smart Grids’ Capacity Planning

Generation expansion planning (GEP) is a classical problem that determines an optimal investment plan for existing and future electricity generation technologies. GEP is a computationally challenging problem, as it typically corresponds to a very large-scale problem that contains several sources of uncertainties. With the advent of demand response (DR) as a reserved capacity in modern … Read more

Robust location-transportation problems with integer-valued demand

A Location-Transportation (LT) problem concerns designing a company’s distribution network consisting of one central warehouse with ample stock and multiple local warehouses for a long but finite time horizon. The network is designed to satisfy the demands of geographically dispersed customers for multiple items within given delivery time targets. The company needs to decide on … Read more
