1 Application of Computational Intelligence Techniques for Economic Load Dispatch

Authors: C. Ardil, S. Panda, S.C. Swain, A.K. Mohanty


This paper presents the applications of computational intelligence techniques to economic load dispatch problems. The fuel cost equation of a thermal plant is generally expressed as continuous quadratic equation. In real situations the fuel cost equations can be discontinuous. In view of the above, both continuous and discontinuous fuel cost equations are considered in the present paper. First, genetic algorithm optimization technique is applied to a 6- generator 26-bus test system having continuous fuel cost equations. Results are compared to conventional quadratic programming method to show the superiority of the proposed computational intelligence technique. Further, a 10-generator system each with three fuel options distributed in three areas is considered and particle swarm optimization algorithm is employed to minimize the cost of generation. To show the superiority of the proposed approach, the results are compared with other published methods.

Keywords: Particle Swarm Optimization, economic load dispatch, real-coded genetic algorithm, quadratic programming, Continuous Fuel Cost, Discontinuous Fuel Cost
