In this paper an optimal short-term hydrothermal generation (OHG) is used to determine the optimal operation for cascaded hydropower plants and thermal plants considering equality constraints including water time delay, reservoir volume constraint, continuity water constraint , power balance constraint, and inequality constraints such as the limits of thermal and hydro generations. Coua bird-inspired algorithm (CA) is successfully applied for solving the OHG problem. Assessment of the technique’s enactment is done by comparing the obtained results from it and other methods reported in the paper on four hydrothermal systems in which thermal units consider the valve point loading effect and a four cascaded reservoir system is taken into account.
