—Hybrid energy resources are generally accepted with the concern of global pollution and warming. Optimization studies on the detailed scheduling of hybrid energy usage are trying to find solutions for complex problems including uncertainty and lots of data. This paper gives the comparison of applying a MIP model and a stochastic model for detailed scheduling of a tri-generation system using wind and solar sources with thermal collectors. The proposed hourly scheduling will allow balancing the production and consumption as well as giving more realistic commitments the day ahead. The model is applied and compared for regional energy production to respond the demands of an industrial center in Turkey.
