Abstract

A genetic algorithm (GA) augmented with knowledge-based methods has been developed for solving the unit commitment economic dispatch problem. The GA evolves a population of binary strings which represent commitment schedules. The initial population of schedules is chosen using a method based on elicited scheduling knowledge. A fast rule-based dispatch method is then used to evaluate candidate solutions. The knowledge-based genetic algorithm is applied to a test system of ten thermal units over 24-hour time intervals, including minimum on/off times and ramp rates, and achieves lower cost solutions than Lagrangian relaxation in comparable computational time.
