Two-stage robust unit commitment problem

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


In this paper, we study the unit-commitment problem in which the demand at each time unit is uncertain, due to weather conditions and economic situation. Instead, the demand is within an uncertainty set. We develop a two-stage robust integer programming formulation for the problem, and provide a tractable solution approach that includes an efficient separation algorithm to solve the problem. The computational experiments show the effectiveness of our approach.
