In this paper we are comparing the widely used Heuristic Method and Genetic Algorithm with a faster and effective non-iterative “λ-Logic Based” algorithm for ED (Economic Dispatch) of Thermal Units. The non-iterative method uses pre-prepared data to obtain the solution for a specified power demand. Genetic Algorithm performs directed random searches through a given set of alternative with the aim of finding the best alternative with respect to the given criteria of goodness. In this paper ED problem is solved using iterative method by Heuristic method , Non-iterative approach by “ƛlogic Based” technique and genetic Algorithm approach (GA) .The proposed algorithms are tested on 3 and 38 bus system using MATLAB software and the results reported in the paper.
