This paper proposes a new, efficient and powerful heuristic-hybrid algorithm using hybrid DE (differential evolution) and PSO (particle swarm optimization) techniques DEPSO (differential evolution particle swarm optimization) designed to solve eight optimization problems with benchmark functions and the MAED (multi-area economic dispatch), RCMAED (reserve constrained MAED) and RCMAEED (reserve constrained multi area environmental/economic dispatch) problems with reserve sharing in power system operations. The proposed hybridizing sum-local search optimizer, entitled HSLSO, is a relatively simple but powerful technique. The HSLSO algorithm is used in this study for solving different MAED problems with non-smooth cost function. The effectiveness and efficiency of the HSLSO algorithm is first tested on a number of benchmark test functions. Experimental results showe the HSLSO has a better quality solution with the ability to converge for most of the tested functions.
