In electrical power system, economic load dispatch is a generic operation for optimal sharing of generation units to meet the system load. With the rapid development of the renewable infrastructure and wide encouragement for green energy have emerged hybrid generating systems in power systems. However, there continuous ever-increasing production is creating challenges as well as implicating economic factor also in operation. A collective cost function is considered with the conventional thermal generators along with the consideration of renewable energy sources to envisage the economic factor. For these renewable sources, like wind and solar, the proportional cost, their uncertainty and variability by overestimation and underestimation cost are considered. To achieve this economic day-ahead scheduling, dynamic operation in time scale of 1 h interval is performed. The stochastic nature of wind and solar is modelled by Weibull and Beta distributions, respectively. Moreover, economic optimisation is obtained by a newly developed algorithm called improved fireworks algorithm with nonuniform operator (IFWA-NMO). This introduces adaptive dimension strategy, limiting mapping operator and non-uniform operator. The effectiveness of proposed IFWA-NMO is investigated on standard dynamic economic load dispatch (DELD) system and also employed to solve conventional DELD with wind-solar system.
