Managing income is a considerable dimension in supply chain management in current economic atmosphere. Real world situation makes it inevitable not to design or redesign supply chain. Redesign will take place as costs increase or new services for customers’ new demands should be provided. Pricing is an important fragment of Supply chain due to two reasons: first, represents revenue based each product and second, based on supply-demand relations enables Supply chain to provide demands by making suitable changes in facilities and their capacities. In this study, Benders decomposition approach used to solve multi-product, multi-echelon and multi-period supply chain network redesign including price-sensitive customers.

Development of every society is incumbent upon energy sector’s technological and economic effectiveness. The electricity industry is a growing and needs to have a better performance to effectively cover the demand. The industry requires a balance between cost and efficiency through careful design and planning. In this paper, a two-stage stochastic programming model is presented for the design of electricity supply chain networks. The proposed network consists of power stations, transmission lines, substations, and demand points. While minimizing costs and maximizing effectiveness of the grid, this paper seeks to determine time and location of establishing new facilities as well as capacity planning for facilities. We use chance constraint method to satisfy the uncertain demand with high probability. The proposed model is validated by a case study on Southern Khorasan Province’s power grid network, the computational results show that the reliability rate is a crucial factor which greatly effects costs and demand coverage.

Today, the use of electrical energy storage has a significant role in flatting the load curve, peak shaving, increasing reliability and also increasing the penetration of distributed generation, reducing carbon emissions, and reducing network losses. In this article, a three-echelon power supply chain is investigated considering energy storage as a new level in the power supply chain. The model in this article is an integrated model of locating and capacity planning of distributed energy storage with the aim of maximizing profit and reliability, which is modeled with two different approaches. The first model is modeled from the point of view of the distribution network as the owner of the energy storage and the second model is modeled from the perspective of the electricity subscribers as the owner of the energy storage. Finally, the model is solved by GAMS software and the results of sensitivity analysis are presented. According to the obtained results, the presented model is the most sensitive to the changes in demand and production, and the owners of energy storage should be sensitive to the changes in production and demand in different seasons of the year in order to get the maximum profit.
