It therefore may be important to take another look at how unit commitment models and algorithms are validated especially as improvements in solutions and algorithmic performance are desired to combat the added complexity of additional constraints. This paper explores an overview of the current state of unit commitment models and algorithms, and finds improvements for both comparing and validating models with benchmark test systems. Examples are provided discussing the importance for a standard benchmark test system(s) and why it is needed to compare and validate the real world performance of unit commitment models.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2016 IEEE||Keywords:||Unit Commitment (UC); MILP; MIP; Benchmark test systems||DOI:||10.1109/PESGM.2016.7741887||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||2016 Power and Energy Society General Meeting (PESGM)||Conference Details:||Power and Energy Society General Meeting (PESGM), Boston, Massachusetts, USA, 17-21 July 2016|
