[en] Optimal dimensionning ; gas transport
[en] In [9], De Wolf and Smeers consider the problem of the optimal
dimensioning of a gas transmission network when the topology of the
network is known. The pipe diameters must been chosen to minimize
the sum of the investment and operating costs. This two stage prob-
lem was solved by application of the bundle method for nonsmooth
This model does not re
ect any more the current situation on the
gas industry. Today, the transportation function and gas buying func-
tion are separated. This work considers the new situation for the trans-
portation company. The objective for the transportation company is to
determine the
ows in the network that minimize the energy used for
the gas transport. This corresponds to the minimization of the power
used in the compressors. We introduce in the investment problem new
decision variables, namely the maximal power of the compressor. We
present here rst results obtained on the belgian gas network and on a
realistic network corresponding to a part of the french network.
