Hello, I want make objective function for 24-h Charging / Discharging scheduling.
for 1:24
for 1:5
fun = a*P_char*C_cost1 - (1-a)P_dischar*C_cost2 %% a=charging signal, P = charging discharging power, C = charging discharging cost
end
end
but this function didn't consider other times cost, they just think current time step only.
How can I fix my function? Plz help me. thank you :)

Maybe you should update fun to remember the entire sum, not just the final one. And maybe you should name your indices.
fun = optimexpr;
for i = 1:24
for j = 1:5
fun = fun + a(i)*P_char(i)*C_cost1(j) - (1-a(i))*P_dischar(i)*C_cost2(j) %% a=charging signal, P = charging discharging power, C = charging discharging cost
end
end
I may have messed up the i and j indices, but I hope that you get the idea. You could probably create the expression without any loops, too, and it would be more efficient to do so. See Expressions for Objective Functions.

I am still not sure that I understand you.
First, are you using the problem-based approach or the solver-based approach? I thought at first you were using the problem-based approach, but now I am not so sure.
For the problem-based approach, you need to create an optimization problem and optimization variables. Your objective function should not be a function handle, but instead should be an optimization expression in the optimization variables. You can use this approach only for recent MATLAB versions.
For the solver-based approach, you need to get your indices straight.
I do not understand what the command opti('fun', fun,...) does.
Good luck,

Hi Kim
I am also working on a mixed integer nonlinear problem and using MINLP MATLAB toolbox, and using SCIP solver. I am just wondering how you to give a nonlinear objective function in this suit?
Thanking you in anticipation
