Abstract : This thesis develops a methodology that can be used to determine the type and quantity of mobile electric power generators necessary to meet current and future total Marine Corps electrical demand. This determination is a major part of the formal Marine Corps Mobile Electric Power Requirements Analysis. It is conducted in two steps. The first step involves application of the Army's Belvoir Generator Allocation Program (BGAP), a computer program that determines individual unit generator requirements, to individual Marine Corps units. The second step uses the BGAP results as input and determines the total force generator requirements and allocations over time using the Marine Corps Mobile Electric Power Optimization Model (MCMEPOM), a new model developed in this thesis. MCMEPOM is a non-consumptive demand, multiperiod linear programming model implemented with the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS).
