Prime objective of Electrical energy generation is to satisfy the customer needs economically with emphasis on safety, reliability and quality. During the past few years, renewable energy sources have received greater attention and considerable inputs have been given to develop efficient energy conversion and utilization techniques. Directly interfacing the Wind Energy Conversion System to a utility grid gives rise to problems of Voltage fluctuations, flickering & generation of sub-harmonics / harmonics associated with the pulsating torque and due to varying nature of wind speed. These WECS are generally used with some form of controller to p   Read More...

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...
