In electricity supply systems, there exist a wide range of problems involving optimisation process [1, 2]. It may include individual generation, transmission, distribution systems or any combination of them. In general, the target is to minimize the costs for construction and operation of the system. The economic efficiency or profits thus becomes the objective function and the other requirements are represented by the constraints. The decisions concerned can cover periods of different lengths: long-term, medium term, short term and online. This forms a hierarchical structure typically from expansion planning, maintenance scheduling, fuel resource scheduling, unit commitment, load dispatch to optimal power flow. Recent introduction of deregulation into electricity supply industry adds new dimension in such optimisation problems with the maximum market benefit as its objective [3].
