Abstract: In this paper, a formulation that enables ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithms to be applied to the power plant maintenance scheduling optimization (PPMSO) problem is developed and tested on a 21-unit case study. A heuristic formulation is introduced and its effectiveness in solving the problem is investigated. The results obtained indicate that the performance of ACO algorithms is significantly better than that of a number of other metaheuristics, such as genetic algorithms and simulated annealing, which have been applied to the same case study previously.
