Solving Economic Dispatch By Using Swarm Based Mean-Variance Mapping Optimization (MVMOS)


Truong Khoa H, Vasant P, Balbir Singh and Vo Dieu N

This paper proposes a novel optimization which named as Swarm based Mean-variance mapping optimization (MVMOS) for solving the economic dispatch. The proposed optimization algorithm is the extension of the original single particle mean-variance mapping optimization (MVMO). The novel feature is the special mapping function applied for the mutation base on the mean and variance of n-best population.The MVMOS outperforms the classical MVMO in global search ability due to the improvement of the mapping. The proposed MVMOS is investigated on four test power systems, including 3-, 13- , 20- thermal generating units and large-scale system 140 units with quadratic cost function and the obtained results are compared with many other known methods in the literature. Test results show that the proposed method can efficiently implement for solving economic dispatch.
