OPTIMAL LOAD SCHEDULING OF NIGERIAN POWER SYSTEM WITH VALVE POINT EFFECT USING JAYA OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM
Keywords:load scheduling, value point, Jaya optimization, pattern search, genetic algorithm
Economic load dispatch is a non-linear optimization problem which is of great importance in power systems. This paper proposes the optimal scheduling of the Nigeria Integrated Power System considering valve point loading effect using Jaya Optimization Algorithm (JOA).Data was collected from national control centre Osogbo and was used to develop cost function for the thermal stations actively contributing power to the national grid. M file was written in MatLab R2012a environment using Jaya Optimization Algorithm, Pattern Search Algorithm (PSA) and Genetic Algorithm (GA) to optimally schedule power generation by the power system. Result obtained showed that scheduling with JOA produced a cost of 210.8092N/hr, PSA produced a cost of 211.9579N/hr and GA produced a cost of 212.6687N/hr. The simulation result shows the advantage of the proposed method for reducing the total cost of power generation by the system over the other methods.
