Abstract--This paper discusses the planning problem of a
group of domestic Combined Heat and Power (microCHP)
appliances, which together form a Virtual Power Plant (VPP).
To act on an electricity trading market, this VPP has to specify a
production plan for electricity for given times of the day to offer
to this market. These amounts have to be delivered exactly when
these times arrive; moreover, deviations from these contracts are
penalized for. We focus on the planning of individual microCHPs
for one day ahead, given that the aggregated output of the
group should fulfill a desired production pattern that the VPP
wants to offer on the market. The contribution in this context
is twofold. Firstly, we present a planning approach based on
column generation which calculates for all individual appliances
