We formulate the capacity expansion planning as a bilevel optimization to model the hierarchical decision structure involving industrial producers and consumers. The formulation is a mixed-integer bilevel linear program in which the upper level maximizes the profit of a producer and the lower level minimizes the cost paid by markets. The upper-level problem(More)
Virtually all chemical processes are nonlinear, but for several of them linear feedback control is adequate. Therefore, before nonlinear controller design is attempted, it is natural to ask " When is linear control adequate for a nonlinear process? " to ensure favorable cost/benefit ratio. Consequently, methods are needed that quantify the nonlinearity of a(More)
