Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) was launched in January 2010 and target for solar power was put at 20000 MW by 2022. This was uphill task at that time as the cost of solar PV system was Rs 220 per Wp. By 2012 the prices crashed to Rs 50 per MW & same daunting task started looking a modest one.

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...
