Economic dispatch aims to determine the optimal generated power from the generation units to meet the required load at the lowest fuel cost. In this paper, a stochastic whale optimization (SWO) method is proposed to solve the economic dispatch problem. Whale optimization algorithm is enhanced using mutation and crossover operators. To test the proposed method two systems (3 and 10 generating units) are tested. We compare the proposed SWO algorithm with whale optimization algorithm, artificial bee colony algorithm, dragonfly algorithm, ant lion algorithm, gray wolf optimization, and whale optimization algorithm with mutation only. The obtained results demonstrate the high efficiency of the proposed method compared with the other methods.
