  • Alireza Soroudi, Energy Institute UCD, Alireza.soroudi@ucd.ie


The optimal decision making is a key part of any engineering problem. The General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) can be used to solve various power system operation and planning optimization problems. This tutorial is to provide the audience with a comprehensive overview of the GAMS capabilities solving for basic/advanced power system optimization problems. The theoretical background as well as the application examples and test case studies will be covered. It is suitable for dedicated and general audiences including power system professionals as well as researchers and developers from the energy sector and electrical power engineering community and will be helpful to undergraduate and graduate students.
