Multi-Objective Economic Emission Load Dispatch Solution Using Evolutionary Algorithm with and without Considering Wind Power Penetration and Valve Point Effect
The electrical power system is considered as the most complex man-made systems mainly due to their wide geographical coverage. Electrical energy industries contributes environmental pollution which rise questions concern environmental protection and methods of eliminating or reducing pollution from power plants either by design or by operational strategies. Electric power plants are mainly aimed to operate al low fuel cost strategies .In this paper a Multi –Objective Economic Emission Load Dispatch problem is solved to minimize the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) , oxides of other fuels that release during generation of electricity and fuel cost considering both Thermal generators and Wind turbines. A large number of iterations and oscillation are those of the major concern in solving the economic load dispatch problem by using the BFO(bacterial foraging optimization) method. By applying BFO method the economic dispatch problem is optimized to minimize the total generation cost of a power system while satisfying various equality and inequality constraints. The effect of Wind power on overall emission is also investigated here using Quadratic programming by wolf’s method. This method has better convergence characteristic. Wolf’s method is an extended simplex procedure which can be applied to Quadratic programming problems in which all the problem variables are non-negative.
