The problem of optimal coverage of the load schedule of the Ukrainian Integrated Power System formulated
and solved in the form of the problem of choosing the best load distribution of generating and cumulative
capacities, taking into account technological limitations.
The obtained solution allows forecast the potential of minimizing the weighted average cost of electricity
production at different forecast horizons вЂ“ from an hour to several years.
An algorithm for using the obtained results in the development of reference scenarios for the development
of energy systems also proposed.
Keywords: optimal coverage, mathematical model, load schedule, weighted average cost.
