The deregulated power systems are importantly needed to reduce the bidding cost. The economic dispatch concept yields minimum cost. The economic dispatch problem can be solved with many methods. Each method has its own advantage and disadvantages. In this paper, economic dispatch problem with deregulated power system is implemented. The meta-heuristic method changes the results in each run. Here the comparisons of cuckoo search with other methods for its success rate are analyzed and demonstrated. The system is applied for 3-seller system, and results are tabulated.
