This paper presents a method to solve the economic power dispatch problem with piecewise quadratic cost functions. The solution approach is hierarchical, which allows for decentralized computations. An advantage of this approach is the capability to optimize over a greater variety of operating conditions. Traditionally, one cost function for each generator is assumed. In this formulation multiple intersecting cost functions are assumed. This method has application to fossil generation units capable of burning gas and oil, as well as other problems which result in multiple intersecting cost curves for a particular unit. The results show that the solution method is practical and valid for real-time application. The motivation for this research stems from the actual operational and planning problems of a large Southwestern Utility.
