Grey Wolf Optimization Technique For Solving Economic Load Dispatch Problem
In this paper, an efficient artificial intelligence Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) technique has been proposed for
solving economic load dispatch. The objective is to minimize the total generating cost while maintaining the power balance
equation and certain equality and inequality constraints. The economic load dispatch problem is the most significant
optimization problem in scheduling the generation of thermal generators in power system. The proposed technique is
implemented on two test systems. A comparison of obtained simulation results by using this technique with seven other
swarm intelligence algorithms has been done. These techniques are applied on two test systems; one comprisingof three
generators and other comprising of six generators. The results signifythe superiority of the GWO techniques among others to
solve the ELD problem.
