(b) Solve the generator dispatch problem with the data given in gen_dispatch_data.m, which
gives (fake, but not unreasonable) demand data for 2 days, at 15 minute intervals. This ﬁle
includes code to plot the demand, optimal generator powers, and prices. (You must replace
these variables with their correct values.) Comment on anything you see in your solution
that might at ﬁrst seem odd. Using the prices found, solve the problems in part (a) for the
generators separately, to be sure they give the optimal powers (up to some small numerical
Remark. While beyond the scope of this course, we mention that there are very simple price update
mechanisms that adjust the prices in such a way that when the generators independently schedule
themselves using the prices (as described above), we end up with the total power generated in each
period matching the demand, i.e., the optimal solution of the whole (coupled) problem. This gives
a decentralized method for generator dispatch.
