This paper addresses the daily fuel scheduling problem of optimum allocation of fuels to various generating units to meet the hourly load requirementeemnt subject to hourly. and daily constraints. The hourly constraints consist of maximum and minimum limits on unit capacities, fuel consumption by a single unit or combination of units, and fuel supply from each contract. The daily maximum and minimum limits on fuel supply from each contract constitute the set of daily constraints. In addition, units with shared and mixed fuels and contracts supplying to different units are considered simultaneously.
