A Novel Method for Economic Dispatch of Combined Heat and Power Generation
AbstractThe paper proposes a modified Bat algorithm (MBA) for searching optimal solutions of Economic dispatch of combined heat and power generation (CHPGED) with the heat and power generation from three different types of units consisting of pure power generation units, pure heat generation units and cogeneration units. The CHPGED problem becomes complicated and big challenge to optimization tools since it considers both heat and power generation from cogeneration units. Thus, we apply MBA method with the purpose of enhancing high quality solution search ability as well as search speed of conventional Bat algorithm (BA). This proposed approach is established based on three modifications on BA. The first is the adaptive frequency adjustment, the second is the optimal range of updated velocity, and the third is the retained condition of a good solution with objective to ameliorate the search performance of traditional BA. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is evaluated by testing on 7, 24, and 48 units systems and IEEE 14-bus system and comparing results with BA together with other existing methods. As a result, it can conclude that the proposed MBA method is a favorable meta-heuristic algorithm for solving CHPGED problem. View Full-Text
