Abstract—This paper proposes a new approach for solving
the complicated environmental protection power dispatch
(EPPD) problem for modern power system. In the work,
pollutant emission and generation cost, which are two
conflicting objective functions, are taken into account
concurrently within the optimization process. Then, the
proposed interactive bi-objective programming with valuable
trade-off (IBPVT) approach is applied to obtain an
pareto-optimal solution, which is an emission-cost trade-off
solution, by following the intention of the decision maker. The
salient feature of the proposed approach is that it can provide a
flexible and compromising solution through an easy and
interactive process to help power systems obtain the optimal
emission-cost power dispatch. Two test cases have been
demonstrated and proven to obtain the superior features. The
encouraging simulation results show that the proposed
approach is capable of obtaining high quality solutions for
practical EPPD problems.
