3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Long-term economic optimization for extension of elecricity supply system. Devised especially for South African conditions, i.e. well separated load centres. Use of point models is avoided. Present-worth discounting technique is applied.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Each installation of new generating plant is selected for site, size and type as to minimize total discounted system generating costs. Each iteration does this against a partly optimized background, using typically a 25-year look-ahead period.
Linear programming is not used.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Transmission of power allowed only from one area into four others. No provision made for regional load dispatch, i.e. same load duration curve used for all supply areas.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

20 minutes on IBM 370/155. Strong dependence on number of station types allowed for comparison. 150 minutes running time possible.
