Mantawy, A.H. and Soliman, S.A. and El-Hawary, M.E. (2001) An innovative simulated annealing approach to the long-term hydroscheduling problem. Power Engineering, 2001. LESCOPE '01. 2001 Large Engineering Systems conference, 1.
This paper presents a new simulated annealing algorithm (SAA) to solve the long-term hydro scheduling problem (LTHSP). A new algorithm for randomly generating feasible trial solutions is introduced. The problem is a hard nonlinear optimization problem in continuous variables. An adaptive cooling schedule and a new method for variables discretization are implemented to enhance the speed and convergence of the original SAA. A significant reduction in the number of the objective function evaluations, and consequently less iterations are required to reach the optimal solution. The proposed algorithm has been applied successfully to solve a system with four series cascaded reservoirs. Numerical results show an improvement in the solutions compared to previously obtained results
