The solution of generation scheduling (GS) problems involves the determination of the unit commitment (UC) and economic dispatch (ED) for each generator in a power system at each time interval in the scheduling period. The solution procedure requires the simultaneous consideration of these two decisions. In recent years researchers have focused much attention on new solution techniques to GS. This paper proposes the application of a variety of genetic algorithm (GA) based approaches and investigates how these techniques may be improved in order to more quickly obtain the optimum or near optimum solution for the GS problem. The results obtained show that the GA-based hybrid approach offers an effective alternative for solving realistic GS problems within a realistic timeframe.
