In this paper, a Linear Programming (LP) optimization procedure is proposed in which the generations are so allocated that the cost of providing fuel supply as well as transmission reinforcements are minimized. DC load flow is employed to model the network. Various fuel supply scenarios are observed. The approach is successfully tested on Iranian Power Grid as a multi-area large scale system.
