Abstract
Green energy has become a media issue due to climate changes, and consequently, the population has become more aware of pollution. Wind farms are an essential energy production alternative to fossil energy. The incentive to produce wind energy was a government policy some decades ago to decrease carbon emissions. In recent decades, wind farms were formed by a substation and a couple of turbines. Nowadays, wind farms are designed with hundreds of turbines requiring more than one substation. This paper formulates an integer linear programming model to design wind farms' cable layout with several turbines. The proposed model obtains the optimal solution considering different cable types, infrastructure costs, and energy losses. An additional constraint was considered to limit the number of cables that cross a walkway, i.e., the number of connections between a set of wind turbines and the remaining wind farm. Furthermore, considering a discrete set of possible turbine locations, the model allows identifying those that should be present in the optimal solution, thereby addressing the optimal location of the substation(s) in the wind farm. The paper illustrates solutions and the associated costs of two wind farms, with up to 102 turbines and three substations in the optimal solution, selected among sixteen possible places. The optimal solutions are obtained in a short time.

Abstract
Resumo: Em Portugal, a disponibilidade de mão de obra tem-se revelado um fator-chave para a viticultura de montanha. Estatísticas mais recentes denotam valores preocupantes que poderão colocar em causa a produção de vinho de qualidade e o atraente conjunto de paisagens vitivinícolas consideradas um recurso potencial para o desenvolvimento do turismo. Por a região duriense ser uma das principais regiões vitivinícolas portuguesas, caracterizada por proeminente e acentuada viticultura de montanha, pretende-se, neste trabalho, simular o comportamento das suas explorações perante alterações do preço de mão de obra, recorrendo-se a modelos baseados em agentes (ABM). Foi ainda usado o software MATLAB para obter funções periódicas ajustadas aos dados caracterizadores das variáveis consideradas pertinentes, obtidas de inquéritos presenciais a 110 explorações e atendendo aos dados disponibilizados pela Rede de Informação de Contabilidades Agrícolas (RICA). Posteriormente, o software ABM (NETLOGO) foi selecionado para simular os próximos 100 anos, familiarizando a dinâmica real baseada nos dados anteriormente considerados. Dependendo do preço da mão de obra, no final do horizonte de simulação, com o preço da uva a 0,77€ /kg, das 300 explorações existentes inicialmente, sobrevivem entre 127 e 231 (42,3% a 77%). Num cenário mais otimista, com o preço da uva a 1,17 €/kg, a taxa de sobrevivência oscila entre 72,1% e 93,2%.
