The author introduces a novel operation tool for economic dispatch. It deals with the development and implementation of a new approach-a dynamic rule-based dispatch algorithm that takes into account the major problems faced by the dispatch operator during a dispatch interval and channels those into a database for use by a rule-based system. The algorithm is very fast and can be used effectively in interconnected systems. It can also handle renewable technologies and is therefore considered useful for major electric power utilities contemplating adding a significant amount of these new generation sources to their existing mix
