This paper reports the application of a hybrid metaheuristic — a combination of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) methods, in midscale thermal power dispatch problem with transmission losses. The hybrid technique applies ACO over output obtained by PSO to get an economic load dispatch (ELD) solution close to global optima. In the present study the hybrid technique has been experimented with a 15-generator system by considering generator capacity constraints… CONTINUE READING
