Market-Based Electric Power Generation Planning With Emission Control, Shantha Daniel, K. Jo Min

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

Recently, there has been an increasing emphasis on environmental concerns in the electric power industry, especially air pollution. Under this circumstance, we formulate a generation planning model that considers not only the conventional production costs, but also the costs related to air pollution. In particular, we will focus on sulfur dioxide emission which is heavily regulated by Environmental Protection Agency via emission permits. For this particular type of pollutant, we present a generation planning model consisting of an annual strategic model and a weekly tactical model. An illustrative numerical example is provided.
