An objective function including fuel/power price forecasts is evaluated/optimised in order to determine the advisability of a washing event. The cost function depends on a state vector comprising both Integer/Boolean and continuous state variables which are interconnected via a set of rules or constraints. Mixed Integer Programming (MIP) is a used for implementing the inventive procedure.
