This paper presents an application of Genetic Algorithm (GA) to solve Economic Load Dispatch problem which aims to determine minimum fuel cost and Environmental Load Dispatch problem which aims to determine minimum gas emission for required energy production of the chosen power system. Test system is chosen as IEEE-30 bus system which includes 6 generators with necessary values given for ease of simulation. Several cases of Economic Load Dispatch and Environmental Load Dispatch with different load demands considering and non-considering line losses are simulated, and these verified results are compared with previous research results.
