PROCEDURE FOR THE OPTIMAL DISTRIBUTION OF ELECTRIC POWER (PROMETHEE) FOR THE METRO AT A FIXED LEVEL

PROCEDURE DE REPARTITION OPTIMALE, POUR LE METRO, A UN HORIZON FIXE, DE L'ENERGIE ELECTRIQUE (PROMETHEE)

An interactive system is described which is part of a more comprehensive process for managing the power supply system of the metro. Using a generator of feasible "line-assignments" the problem is formulated as a bivalent (0.1) linear program. To solve it, two approaches were successively studied. The first uses both linear programming and branch and bound (PSES). The second, by relaxing some constraints, combines a decomposition method of Dantzig and Wolfe with a subgradient method. The results obtained show a substantial improvement in the objective function which has been retained as representative of the cost of mean and long range planning.
