    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The paper presents an efficient computational algorithm for selecting the optimal generation mix considering CO2 emissions. The method is based on an optimization method known as simulated annealing. In this method, solutions in a generation mix problem are equivalent to the states of a physical system and the cost of a solution is equivalent to the energy of a state.
