In this research a multi-objective Interactive Artificial Bee Colony (MOIABC) is applied for Environmental/ Economic Power Dispatch (EED) problem. The EED problem is the scheduling of generators which fulfill the load demand of the power plants using fossil fuel and also making combined production, in order for them to perform with minimum cost and emission. Thus, by environmental dispatch, emissions can be reduced by dispatch of power generation to minimize emissions. The proposed technique

The comparison reported results with MODE and other techniques reveals the superiority of the proposed MOIABC approach and confirms its potential for solving other power systems multi-objective optimization problems.
