The thermal generator maintenance scheduling problem has been tackled by a variety of traditional optimisation techniques over the years. While these methods can give an optimal solution to small scale problems, they are often inefficient and impractical when applied to larger problems. In this paper, we employ a multi-stage approach where the problem is decomposed into smaller sub-problems, each of which can be solved much more efficiently by existing algorithms. After each part of the problem… CONTINUE READING
