About this Research Topic
Recently, evolutionary multi-objective optimization (EMO) algorithms have received a surge of attention in microgrid applications. Due to the population-based, black-box search/optimization characteristics, EMO algorithms can well deal with complex microgrid power dispatching problems with more than two conflicting objectives. In principle, EMO algorithms utilize the Pareto optimality concept to search for the optimal configurations in the power dispatching process. In this way, a set of Pareto optimal solutions can be obtained in an effective way. In addition, the search of EMO does not require any gradient information of the specific problems, showing strong search robustness. Due to its population-based search, the EMO algorithms can be implemented naturally in parallel, which can increase the computation efficiency when tackling complex distributed power dispatching problems. Therefore, it is of great interest to investigate the role of EMO techniques in solving microgrid power dispatching problems.
