This paper aims to develop a novel algorithm based on all contractual and technical real-world constraints for a gas import/wholesale company in the concept of flexibility. The Mixed Integer Linear Program (MILP) is applied to a portfolio of contracts to produce the optimal amount of purchases pipeline natural gas (PNG) agreements, spot natural gas purchases, natural gas storage use levels and Session IV (16:00-17:30) – ENERGY & FINANCE 18 LNG purchases based on a real life case under various commitments such as Monthly Contract Quantity (MCQ), Annual Contract Quantity (ACQ), pipeline capacity, LNG and storage constraints. Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS) is applied to the natural gas demand to determine its future movements by incorporating inputs such as heating degree days (HDD), cooling degree days (CDD) and one-period earlier gas supply realizations. The output of the proposed model enables local distribution companies (LDCs) to develop criteria on producing the optimal future natural gas purchases based on different oil scenarios. Along with World Bank (WB) oil forecasts, we suggest a stochastic model (ARIMA) based on historical oil prices. A case study on a local distribution company in ˙Istanbul city is employed to illustrate the long term gas purchase price curves for different Take-or-Pay (ToP) rates which is aimed to guide the LDCs on their willingness to pay for long term natural gas contracts. The main outcome of this article is the determination of the long term price curves for LDCs under demand and supply constraints and an application for the ˙Istanbul natural gas market for the first time in literature.

This paper presents methodologies of dynamic planning algorithms which are developed for optimizing long-term primary electric distribution network investments taking into account some planning metrics. First, an algorithm which calculates a representative primary network model of distribution grids whose primary and secondary networks are intricate is developed. It is aimed to facilitate assessment of primary distribution network investment requirements and thereby defining grid investment candidates effec...

Profit oriented supply chain network optimization
PAKSOY, TURAN; Ozceylan, Eren; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2013-03-01)
This paper proposes a novel mixed integer linear programming model to solve a supply chain network design problem. The proposed model deals with major issues for supply chains; product quality and cost. These issues are usually solved separately, but in this paper, we investigate effects of product quality on supply chain design and transportation flow. A trade-off between raw material quality, its purchasing and reprocessing costs was considered. Assuming decision maker (DM) wishes to work with a supplier ...
Efficient adaptive regression spline algorithms based on mapping approach with a case study on finance
Koc, Elcin Kartal; İyigün, Cem; Batmaz, İnci; Weber, Gerhard-Wilhelm (2014-09-01)
Multivariate adaptive regression splines (MARS) has become a popular data mining (DM) tool due to its flexible model building strategy for high dimensional data. Compared to well-known others, it performs better in many areas such as finance, informatics, technology and science. Many studies have been conducted on improving its performance. For this purpose, an alternative backward stepwise algorithm is proposed through Conic-MARS (CMARS) method which uses a penalized residual sum of squares for MARS as a T...
Scalable self-deployment of mobile sensor networks: A fluid dynamics approach
Pac, Muhammed R.; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (2006-10-13)
We propose a novel approach inspired by compressible fluids as a distributed and scalable solution to the deployment problem of mobile sensor networks in unknown environments. Our approach is based on fluid dynamics through which we model the sensor network as a fluid body and each sensor node as a fluid element. Originating from local neighborhood interactions, the principles of fluid flow are adapted to the deployment of the sensor network. Mimicking the diffusive and self-spreading behavior of compressib...
