An Improved Differential Evolution Algorithm for Dynamic Economic Dispatch of Power Systems
Differential Evolution (DE), a vector population based stochastic optimization method has been introduced to the public in 1995. During the last 25 years research on and with DE has reached an impressive state, yet there are still many open questions, In this paper ,An improved differential evolution (IDE) algorithm was presented for power system Dynamic economic dispatch(IDED), Dynamic economic dispatch (DED), an extension of the economic dispatch problem, is a method of scheduling the online generators with a predicted load demand over acertain period of time taking into account the various constraints imposed on the system operation. The results indicate that IDE algorithm outperforms GA ,PSO and DE algorithms in solving DED problems.
