Power Generation Unit, Institute of Power Engineering (IPE), Universiti Tenaga Nasional, 43000 Kajang, Selangor, Malaysia
This paper presents the power plant maintenance scheduling and particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique to ensure economical and reliable operation of power system. Initially problems related to the power plant maintenance scheduling in modern power systems are briefed, also explaining the need and importance of an optimum and reliable power plant maintenance system. It briefly describes the maintenance scheduling of power plant by application of PSO technique. This paper proposes power plant maintenance scheduling of a power system based on minimization of the objective function considering the economical and reliable operation of a power system while satisfying the crew/manpower and the load demand.
