Abstract

A new mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) model for location problem is developed in this work in order to find the optimal position of the desalination plants. The model takes into account the given location and capacity of water intakes, the demands, and the pipelining and plant costs. Feasible and infeasible plant regions are distinguished; the feasible regions are assigned either by triangles or convex polygons; the latter one gives rise to shorter computation. Additional constraints are applied to further decrease the computation time. Applicability of the new model is successfully demonstrated on two examples.
