This paper presents a concept of information-integrated decision and control to improve the efficiency, operational reliability, and availability for power generation units, especially the more flexible fossil fuel power plants. The proposed approach simultaneously addresses load dispatch and control, maintenance scheduling, and market decision-making that incorporate sensor-based health monitoring, damage prognosis and life-extension of the generating units in the market-driven environment of energy deregulation.
