Evaluation of Design Alternatives for a Gas Turbine Cogeneration Plant Based on Multiobjective K-Best Solutions

  • To realize the best performance in energy supply, it is an important task to determine types, capacities, and numbers of energy conversion equipment appropriately. It is also necessary to take account of seasonal and hourly variations in energy demands and corresponding operational strategies of equipment. The mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) method has been utilized widely to derive the optimal solution for such a design problem. From the design viewpoint, it is important to generate not only the optimal solution but also suboptimal ones which follow the optimal one without omission, what are called K-best solutions. In this paper, an MILP method utilizing the hierarchical relationship between design and operation variables is applied along with some strategies to efficiently drive K-best solutions of a multiobjective optimal design problem of a gas turbine cogeneration system for district energy supply. The annual total cost and primary energy consumption are adopted as the objective functions to be minimized. A case study is conducted, and K-best solutions with an allowable increase in the value of the combined objective function are derived for each value of the weight for the annual total cost. Through the study, it is clarified how the weight affects the computation time, the number of the K-best solutions, and the design specifications and the values of the objective functions for the K-best solutions.
