Two-Stage Robust Unit Commitment Problem

As an energy market transforms from a regulated market to a deregulated one, the demands for a power plant are highly uncertain. In this paper, we study a two-stage robust optimization formulation and provide a tractable solution approach for the problem. The computational experiments show the effectiveness of our approach.

MIR Closures of Polyhedral Sets

We study the mixed-integer rounding (MIR) closures of polyhedral sets. The MIR closure of a polyhedral set is equal to its split closure and the associated separation problem is NP-hard. We describe a mixed-integer programming (MIP) model with linear constraints and a non-linear objective for separating an arbitrary point from the MIR closure of a … Read more

Two step MIR inequalities for mixed-integer programs

Two-step mixed-integer rounding inequalities are valid inequalities derived from a facet of a simple mixed-integer set with three variables and one constraint. In this paper we investigate how to effectively use these inequalities as cutting planes for general mixed-integer problems. We study the separation problem for single constraint sets and show that it can be … Read more
