Solving Economic Emission Load Dispatch Problems Using Particle Swarm Optimization with Smart Inertia Factor

This paper attempts to propose particle swarm optimization algorithm with smart inertia factor (PSO-SIF) to solve the problem of economic emission load dispatch (EELD) in thermal power plants. The aim of EELD solution is synchronous reduction of both fuel costs and emission level. EELD problem is a non-linear and non-convex problem which uses evolutionary algorithms as efficient to solve such problems due to its complicated characteristics. PSO-SIF algorithm is an efficient and robust algorithm to exploit universal optimal point of optimization problems. Tests implemented on 10-unite systems, considering valve-point loading effects, network losses with Multi-objective functions such as system fuel cost and emission level, to show PSO-SIF algorithm capabilities in solving EELD problems. Results obtained from present investigation indicated universal optimal point exploitation of the problems and superiority of the proposed algorithm compared to other new and efficient algorithms.
