Relative cost profile for solution levels


Alias: none

Argument(s): REALLIST


This specification provides a profile of relative costs corresponding to an ordered hierarchy of solution control values (e.g., discretization levels).

Usage Tips

The order of the cost values should correspond to the order of the discrete set or range values that can be assumed by the variable identified by solution_level_control.


The discrete variable identified by the descriptor 'N_x' should have four values in its set or range, corresponding to the length of the cost specification. The solution_level_cost is neither strictly ascending or descending, rather it should match the order of the discrete values assumed by 'N_x'.

    id_model = 'SIM1'
      solution_level_control = 'N_x'
      solution_level_cost = 630. 1260. 2100. 4200.
