Aditya Parashar , Kuldeep Kumar Swankar. "Genetic algorithm using to the solution of unit commitment". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(7):2986-2990 Jul 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group.


This paper presents for the solution of unit commitment and constrained p roblem by geneti c algorithm. The unit commitment word in power system using for deciding and planning for using generating unit according to load demand at particular hour and any time. Genetic algorithm is an evolutionary algorithm which works on the principle of natural selection like "survival of fittest". In the case study 5 power generating units system for 24 hour period of cycle. The aim of this paper is detract the total production cost including all constraints, and generate a system for economically use of power generating unit.
