Eco Bat Algorithm for Combined Heat and Power Economic Load Dispatch
This paper represents nature inspired Eco Bat Algorithm for solving CHPED (Combined Heat And Power Economic Dispatch) problem involving non smooth , non convex and non linear problem. CHPED problem aims to determine ideal heat and power, satisfying the constraints and to minimized the overall cost of the system under consideration. This method is being tested on two case system. Valve point effect in loading of thermal generators has been considered. Viability of the suggested system is tested on two system, and numerical results are being compared with the other methods.
