Direct search (DS) methods are evolutionary algorithms used to solve constrained optimization problems. DS methods do not require any information about the gradient of the objective function at hand, while searching for an optimum solution. One of such methods is pattern search (PS) algorithm. This study presents a new approach based on a constrained pattern search algorithm to solve well-known power system economic load dispatch problem (ELD) with valve-point effect. For illustrative purposes, the proposed PS technique has been applied to various test systems to validate its effectiveness. Furthermore, convergence characteristics and robustness of the proposed method has been assessed and investigated through comparison with results reported in literature. The outcome is very encouraging and proves that pattern search (PS) is very applicable for solving power system economic load dispatch problem.
