Keywords: Combined Emission and Economic Dispatch (CEED) | Fuel cost | Emission | Cuckoo Search (CS).

This paper presents an application of a new metaheuristic approach called Cuckoo Search (CS) for solving Multiobjective CEED problem. Combined Economic and Emission Dispatch problem determines optimum power generation schedule while minimizing fuel cost and emission simultaneously. Cuckoo Search is inspired from the obligate brood parasitic strategy of cuckoo species in combination with the lévy flights behavior of birds. To validate the effectiveness & feasibility of the approach, it has been examined on three different standard test cases. Simulation results obtained are also compared with other reported methodology. The comparison confirms the superiority, fast convergence and proficiency of the algorithm.
