This paper aims to compare the global search capability and overall performance of a number of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) based algorithms in the context solving the Dynamic Economic Dispatch (DED) problem which takes into account the operation limitations of generation units such as valve-point loading effect as well as ramp rate limits. The comparative study uses six PSO-based algorithms including the basic PSO and hybrid PSO algorithms using a popular benchmark test IEEE power system which is 10-unit 24-hour system with non-smooth cost functions. The experimental results show that one of the hybrid algorithms that combines the PSO with both inertia weight and constriction factor, and the Gaussian mutation operator (CBPSO-GM) is promising in achieving the near global optimal of a non-linear multi-modal optimization problem, such as the DED problem under the consideration. © 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.
