Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book


This paper proposes to decide the optimal capacity of the mixed system for thermal and electric power to minimize total capital cost and total CO2 emission while they are satisfying with total thermal demand and total load demand. The Bees Algorithm is used as a multi-objective solver for this work. Optimal Pareto solutions obtained from approximate 0% to 90% CO2 reduction rates are compared with traditional systems like boiler and grid power and those solutions also suggest optimal capacities of the mixed system in each CO2 reduction rate.
