lands.gms : Optimal Investment

**Description**

The following two-stage problem consists of determining the optimal capacity investment in various types of power plants so as to meet next period demands for electricity. Four power plants are considered and they can operate in three different modes. The next period demand for each of the three modes are to be met. There is a budget constraint and also a constraint on the minimum total capacity.

The following two-stage problem consists of determining the optimal
capacity investment in various types of power plants so as to meet
next period demands for electricity. Four power plants are considered
and they can operate in three different modes. The next period demand
for each of the three modes are to be met. There is a budget
constraint and also a constraint on the minimum total capacity.

This problem will be solved in two steps, we solve each scenario
separately and then all three scenarios together.
Keywords: linear programming, investment planning, stochastic programming,
