Superadditive duality and convex hulls for mixed-integer conic optimization

We present an infinite family of linear valid inequalities for a mixed-integer conic program, and prove that these inequalities describe the convex hull of the feasible set when this set is bounded and described by integral data. The main element of our proof is to establish a new strong superadditive dual for mixed-integer conic programming … Read more

Strengthened MILP Formulation for Combined-Cycle Units

Due to the increased utilization of gas-fired combined-cycle units for power generation in the U.S., accurate and computationally efficient models are more and more needed. The recently proposed edge-based formulation for combined-cycle units helps accurately describe the operations of combined-cycle units including capturing the transition processes and physical constraints for each turbine. In this paper, … Read more
