Title: Optimal switching problems with execution delays
Place: Å4003
Time: 12:15 -- 13:00

Abstract: The optimal switching problem has received a lot of attention in the last decade following the emergence of a number of applications in electricity production. We consider a type of optimal switching problems with non-uniform execution delays and ramping. Such problems frequently occur in the operation of economical and engineering systems. We provide a solution to the problem by extending the probabilistic method previously used to solve the non-delay problem.
