On the solution of mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints
Mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints (MPEC) are nonlinear programming problems where the constraints have a form that is analogous to first-order optimality conditions of constrained optimization. ...
Multi-choice mixed integer goal programming optimization for real problems in a sugar and ethanol milling company
Goal Programming (GP) is an important analytical approach devised to solve many realworld problems. The first GP model is known as Weighted Goal Programming (WGP). However, Multi-Choice Aspirations Level (MCAL) problems ...
An enhanced genetic algorithm to solve the static and multistage transmission network expansion planning
An enhanced genetic algorithm (EGA) is applied to solve the long-term transmission expansion planning (LTTEP) problem. The following characteristics of the proposed EGA to solve the static and multistage LTTEP problem are ...
Optimality conditions for nonlinear infinite programming problems
An infinite programming problem consists in minimizing a functional defined on a real Banach space under an infinite number of constraints. The main purpose of this article is to provide sufficient conditions of optimality ...
Penalty-based nonlinear solver for optimal reactive power dispatch with discrete controls
The optimal reactive dispatch problem is a nonlinear programming problem containing continuous and discrete control variables. Owing to the difficulty caused by discrete variables, this problem is usually solved assuming ...
Bilevel approach for optimal location and contract pricing of distributed generation in radial distribution systems using mixed-integer linear programming
In this study, a novel approach for the optimal location and contract pricing of distributed generation (DG) is presented. Such an approach is designed for a market environment in which the distribution company (DisCo) can ...

Integrating packing and distribution problems and optimization through mathematical programming
(Growing Science, 2016-10)
This paper analyzes the integration of two combinatorial problems that frequently arise in production and distribution systems. One is the Bin Packing Problem (BPP) problem, which involves finding an ordering of some objects ...
An integer linear programming approach for bilinear integer programming
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BVAMSTERDAM, 2012)
We introduce a new Integer Linear Programming (ILP) approach for solving Integer Programming (IP) problems with bilinear objectives and linear constraints. The approach relies on a series of ILP approximations of the ...
A Strategy to Solve the Multistage Transmission Expansion Planning Problem
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-11-01)
In this letter, a heuristic to reduce the combinatorial search space (CSS) of the multistage transmission expansion planning (MTEP) problem is presented. The aim is to solve the MTEP modeled like a mixed binary linear ...
