Abstract: 
This paper analyzes the effects of start-up costs of different technologies in providing electricity power. We explicitly solve a simplified linear formulation of the dispatch problem. Transforming this primal problem, we show that dominated technologies should be used only in the case of limited availability of efficient technologies. Furthermore, we develop a 'pen and paper' algorithm to determine the optimal dispatch.
