Optimal Generation Scheduling of Cascaded Hydrothermal System Using Genetic Algorithm and Constriction Factor Based Particle Swarm Optimization Technique


In this paper, a genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization with constriction factor (CFPSO) are proposed for solving the short term multi chain hydrothermal scheduling problem with non smooth fuel cost objective functions. The performance of the proposed techniques is demonstrated on hydrothermal test system comprising of three thermal units… (More)
