Multi-Area Unit Commitment Problem is to determine the optimal commitment strategy for generating units located in multiple areas that are interconnected via tie–lines and joint operation of generation resources can result in significant operational cost savings. This research paper presents the mathematical formulation for Multi-Area Unit Commitment Problem along with tie-line concept of interconnected power system. The objective of this paper is to describe the multi-area unit commitment problem, mathematical formulation and tie line concept along with transmission interconnections constrains. Also, standard IEEE data for 26-Generating units of four area system along with 24-hours load demand is given as appendix , which can be used as quick reference by other researchers.
