Chance Constrained Programming with Fuzzy Parameters for Refinery Crude Oil Scheduling Problem
The main objective of this work is to put forward a chance constrained mixed-integer nonlinear fuzzy programming model for refinery short-term crude oil scheduling problem under demands uncertainty of distillation units. The model studied has characteristics of discrete events and continuous events coexistence, multistage, multiproduct, uncertainty and large scale. Firstly, the model is transformed into its equivalent fuzzy mixed-integer linear programming model by using the method of Quesada & Grossmann . Then the fuzzy equivalent model is changed into its crisp MILP model relies on the theory presented by Liu & Iwamura  for the first time in this area. Finally, the crisp MILP model is solved in LINGO 8.0 based on time discretization. A case study which has 265 continuous variables, 68 binary variables and 318 constraints is effectively solved with the proposed solution approach.
