Dynamic economic emission dispatch using ant lion optimization

Hardiansyah Hardiansyah


This paper aims to propose a new meta-heuristic search algorithm, called Ant Lion Optimization (ALO). The ALO is a newly developed population-based search algorithm inspired hunting mechanism of ant lions. The proposed algorithm is presented to solve the dynamic economic emission dispatch (DEED) problem with considering the generator constraints such as ramp rate limits, valve-point effetcs, prohibited operating zones and transmission loss. The 5-unit generation system for a 24 h time interval has been taken to validate the efficiency of the proposed algorithm. Simulation results clearly show that the proposed method outperforms in terms of solution quality when compared with the other optimization algorithms reported in the literature.
