This study presents a newly developed methodology to transform the chance-constrained problem into a deterministic problem and then solving this multiobjective deterministic problem with the proposed method. Chance-constrained problem contains independent gamma random variables that are denoted as a(ij). Two methods are proposed to obtain the deterministic equivalent of chance-constrained problem. The first of the methods is directly based on using the distribution, and the second consists of normalizing probabilistic constraints using Lyapunov's central limit theorem. An algorithm which uses the Global Criterion Method is developed to solve the multiobjective deterministic equivalent of chance-constrained problem. The methodology is applied to a real-life engineering problem that consists of an IoT device and its data sending process. Using Lyapunov's central limit theorem for large numbers of random variables is found to be more appropriate.
