Abstract:
This paper presents a discussion of “A new honey bee mating optimization algorithm for non-smooth economic dispatch” Taher Niknam et al. Energy 34 (2009) 757–766. The discussed paper presented economic dispatch problem by experimenting three standard test systems considering 10, 15, and 40-units. However, in the reported results of test system 1, the total fuel cost calculations are different for the given generation schedule. In this discussion, clarification regarding cost calculation is presented.
