Particle swarm optimization for various types of economic dispatch problems

Volume: 28
Issue: 1
Pages: 36 - 42
This paper describes a successful adaptation of the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm to solve various types of economic dispatch (ED) problems in power systems such as, multi-area ED with tie line limits, ED with multiple fuel options, combined environmental economic dispatch, and the ED of generators with prohibited operating zones. Numerical examples typical to each type are solved on Matlab 6.5 platform, using both the PSO method and the classical evolutionary programming (CEP) approach. The results obtained show that the proposed PSO based ED algorithm can provide comparable dispatch solutions with reduced computation time for all types of ED problems. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
