Short Term Optimal Generation Scheduling of Multi-Chain Hydrothermal System Using Constriction Factor Based Particle Swarm Optimization Technique ( CFPSO )

In this paper, the particle swarm optimization technique with constriction factor is proposed to solve short term multi chain hydrothermal scheduling problem with non smooth fuel cost objective functions. The performance of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated on hydrothermal test system comprising of three thermal units and four hydro power plants. A… CONTINUE READING
