Environmental economic dispatch with fuzzy and possibilistic entities

  • Edgar Muela Universidad de La Salle

In this paper a fuzzy possibilistic model for Environmental Economic Dispatch is presented, in order to consider adequately some involved uncertain variables. The developed model can be viewed as an integrative focus where uncertainty is not considered like a simple decision making parameter but it is analyzed as a criterion decision. Here, a fuzzy possibilistic model looks for reflecting the imprecision, ambiguity, and vagueness present in the analyzed problem. Fuzzy sets and possibility theory are an alternative to do this, because they allow including this sort of imperfect information into the problem.
