  abstract =     "In the domain of power grid systems, scheduling tasks
                 are widespread. Typically, linear programming (LP)
                 techniques are used to solve these tasks. For cases
                 with high complexity, linear system modelling is often
                 cumbersome. There, other modelling approaches allow for
                 a more compact representation being typically also more
                 accurate as non-linear dependencies can be captured

                 In this work, we focus on the optimization of a power
                 plant start-up sequence, which is part of the network
                 restoration process of a power system after a blackout.
                 Most large power plants cannot start on their own
                 without cranking energy from the outside grid. These
                 are the non-black start (NBS) units. As after a
                 blackout we assume all power plants being shut down,
                 self-contained power plants (black start (BS) units),
                 such as the hydroelectric power plants, start first and
                 boot the NBS units one after each other. Once a NBS
                 unit is restored, it supports the restoration process
                 and because an average NBS unit is much larger than a
                 BS unit, NBS unit's impact on the restoration process
                 is typically dominant. The overall restoration process
                 can take, depending on the size of the blackout region
                 and the damaged components, some hours to weeks. And as
                 the blackout time corresponds directly to economic and
                 life losses, its reduction, even by some minutes, is

                 In this work we compare two popular metaheuristics, the
                 genetic (GA) and simulated annealing (SA) algorithms on
                 start-up sequence optimization and conclude that an
                 efficient restoration plan can be evolved reliably and,
                 depending on the implementation, in a very short period
                 of time allowing for an integration into a real-time
                 transmission system operation tool.",
