Abstract: Starting from a basic Unit Commitment problem as published in , we develop a fully functional, running
implementation for FICO Xpress-Mosel, useable in power market modeling. The constraints of the model are
discussed in detail and solutions to implementation problems are presented. We also provide guidelines on
how to handle data input (from both, databases and Excel), as well as data output (to Excel).
