Generation Unit Capacity Expansion Planning Analysis: Approach Using Real Coded Improved Genetic Algorithm
This paper provides information about the development of an algorithm called Real Coded Improved Genetic Algorithm (RCIGA). And it leads to a plan for generating units of power with minimum cost and that plan is called as Generation Unit Expansion Planning (GUEP) problem. GUEP is a fully forced non linear system. And this can be solved by technique called genetic algorithm. RCIGA helps in providing faster speed and the space which helps in searching also is increased. RCIGA helps in calculating the combination of units through which the minimum cost can be obtained and units of power should meet out the conditions of the forecasted demands.
