Mantawy, A.H. and Abdel-Magid, Y.L. and Selim, S.Z. (1998) A simulated annealing algorithm for unit commitment. Power Systems, IEEE Transactions on, 13.
This paper presents a simulated annealing algorithm (SAA) to solve the unit commitment problem (UCP). New rules for randomly generating feasible solutions are introduced. The problem has two subproblems: a combinatorial optimization problem; and a nonlinear programming problem. The former is solved using the SAA while the latter problem is solved via a quadratic programming routine. Numerical results showed an improvement in the solutions costs compared to previously obtained results
