Solving a real-life, large-scale energy management problem
A three-phase hybrid heuristic for a large-scale energy management and maintenance scheduling problem to schedule maintenance periods and refueling amounts for nuclear power plants with a time horizon of up to five years is introduced.
Optimization methods for real-life scheduling problems
The challenges that arise when applying optimization methods to real life scheduling problems are considered and the most significant predictor of solution quality of the problems under consideration is shown to be the policies for generating the deterministic instances for rescheduling.
