Power system engineers are facing difficulty in economic operation of the large interconnected power system. Economic dispatch of large interconnected power system is complex, constrained and nonlinear problem which require rigorous and complex calculations before taking any decision apropos to power dispatch. Evolutionary algorithms have been nowadays frequently used for optimum performance of nonlinear and complex systems. This paper proposed to develop an evolutionary algorithm which considers all constraints of power dispatch for economic operation of the power system.
