Environment for modelling and optimization of combined heat and power plant operations
Author: Jan Prášek
This work aims to create a user-friendly environment for modelling and optimization of combined heat and power plant operations, because current methodology does not allow user to create or alter models effectively. Firstly, the work deals with finding suitable graphical environment which would provide a simple way of model scheme creation and fine academical and commercial availability. The most suitable environment apeared to be Visual Paradigm for UML which satisfied all demands. Second part of the work was implementation of program Uml2Solver. Uml2Solver combines all input data - scheme created in Visual Paradigm and input time vector with required parameters stored in MS Excel file, to create and to solve an optimization problem. This problem is created using JD framework and solved by Gurobi solver. The program was implemented using C# .NET framework.
