Fuzzy-TOPSIS for Appropriate Site Selection for Establishing a Thermal Power Plant

Panigrahi, Soumya (2014) Fuzzy-TOPSIS for Appropriate Site Selection for Establishing a Thermal Power Plant. BTech thesis.



Thermal Power Plant (TPP) is one of those discoveries that have changed the daily life of everybody on the real world. Now TPP is playing a vital role in real world due to population growth, modernization of industrial sector and agricultural sections. To meet the demand of modern world regarding thermal power, expansion of TPP must be considered. The appropriateness of chose site for power plant influences the measure of created vitality, power plants processing, expense of power generation, temperate advancement, environment and transmission (loss of power). Accordingly, in site determination process for a TPP it is important to painstakingly think about the specialized issues, as well as its effect on nature's turf, economy and close neighborhood groups. The tried and true methodologies to TPP site determination have a tendency to be less successful in managing the loose or dubious nature of the phonetic appraisal. Under numerous circumstances, the qualities of the qualitative criteria are frequently loosely characterized for the decision-makers. To conquer this situation, Fuzzy Multi-Criteria Decision Making (FMCDM) methodology is proposed. In this reporting, we exhibit a multi-criteria choice making methodology for site determination of TPP under fractional or inadequate data. The proposed approach basically furnished in two steps. In step 1, we identify the criteria for site selection of TPP. In step 2, experts provide linguistic ratings as well as weights to the potential alternatives against the selected criteria. Fuzzy-TOPSIS (Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution) is applied to generate aggregate scores selection of best alternative. Finally a case empirical research is adapted to fruitful the proposed approach
