Abstract

This paper presents an Artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm based method for solving the economic load dispatch (ELD) problem. The objective is to minimize the nonlinear function, which is the total fuel cost of thermal generating units, subject to the usual constraints. The proposed ABC method has been examined for Crete Island system consisting of 18 thermal generating units having quadratic (Convex) cost function, standard IEEE 30 bus system consisting of six generating units and a 15 generating unit system with emission constraints. Results obtained with proposed method are compared with other techniques presented in literature. ABC algorithm is easy to implement and capable of searching near global optimum solution at fast convergence and efficiency.
