Non-linear modelling of integrated energy supply and demand systems
An approach to energy systems modelling is presented. It employs a mixture of non-linear programming techniques considered suitable for the particular structure of energy models, in order to overcome the problems encountered in optimisation with a non-trivial objective function topology, e.g. with several local minima. Preliminary results for a European energy model are presented.
