Hi
You are trying to find the minimum of the variable ETA which is defined over the set i using an optimization approach.
In your case, you could just find the minimum of sum(t,p_pvf(i,t)*c_pv(i)):

Code: Select all

``````parameter
mymin
;

mymin = smin(i, sum(t,p_pvf(i,t)*c_pv(i)));
``````
In your formulation you have a i objective functions: you are trying to minimize each ETA instead of looking for the minimum of all ETA. Multi-
(take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathemati ... timization).
If you want to write an optimization problem, you have to write one objective function maximizing or minimizing one variable.

Hi Renger,
In my purpose, I exactly want to minimize each ETA (ETA(1), ETA(2), ETA(3)) because I want to utilize some distributed algorithm. And p_pvf(i,t) is a variable in my future formulation.
Could you give me some advice to write it under the rule "write one objective function maximizing or minimizing one variable"?
Thank you!

Use the loop function.

Example in the attached file.
