Application of immune algorithm-based particle swarm optimization for optimized load distribution among cascade hydropower stations. (English) Zbl 1186.90134
Summary: The immune algorithm-based particle swarm optimization (IA-PSO), which is proposed by involving the immune information processing mechanism into the original particle swarm optimal algorithm, improves the ability to find the globally excellent result and the convergence speed with its special concentration selection mechanism and immune vaccination. Based on analyzing the model of load distribution among cascade hydropower stations and the traits of IA-PSO, the corresponding mathematical description and the solution procedure made with IA-PSO are given in detail. The result demonstrates that IA-PSO can achieve both a superior load distribution scheme and a higher convergence precision as compared to PSO, and will hopefully be applied to solving more extensive optimization problems.
