A Computing with Words Based Approach to Multicriteria Energy Planning
Exploitation of new and innovative energy alternatives is a key means towards a sustainable energy system. This paper proposes a linguistic energy planning model with computation solely on words as well as considering the policy-maker’s preference information. To do so, a probabilistic approach is first proposed to derive the underlying semantic overlapping of linguistic labels from their associated fuzzy membership functions. Second, a satisfactory-oriented choice function is proposed to incorporate the policy-maker’s preference information. Third, our model is extended to multicriteria case with linguistic importance weights. One example, borrowed from the literature, is used to show the effectiveness and advantages of our model.
