The Energy Pyramid helps us fix priorities and action plans. It interlinks the roles of energy conservation, efficiency and renewable energy to minimize the dependence on fossil fuels. It also helps in our understanding of conservation and efficiency. ‘Conservation’ and ‘Efficiency’ are separate concepts although closely related.

This article proposes a methodology for solving the generation scheduling problem considering, hydro, pump storage, wind & solar energy systems with and without ramp rate. Renewable energy sources are being considered in power system to minimize the total thermal unit fuel cost. Particle Swarm Optimization technique is used for solving renewable hydro-thermal coordination problem. A pseudo code based algorithm is suggested to deal with the equality constraints of the problem for accelerating the optimization process. The simulation results conducted on several cases show that the proposed method is capable of obtaining higher quality solution   Read More...
