The present study investigated economic load dispatch problem, taking into consideration valve point loading effect using an imperialist competitive algorithm. To portray the efficiency of the proposed method, the algorithm was applied to two popular test systems in the area including 13 and 40 thermal units. The obtained results from the algorithm were compared to those of other algorithms which indicated the efficiency and response of the proposed algorithm in solving economic load dispatch
