This study introduces a new hybrid approach by using Grey Wolf Optimization and State Transition optimization algorithm for resolving the issue of economic load dispatch and unit commitment in electric power generation system. The simulation of GWOST is investigated by using the 40 various power units. The results prove that the GWOST outperforms the TLBO (teaching learning based optimization), QOTLBO (Quasi-Oppositional teaching learning based optimization), KHA (Krill Herd Algorithm), GWO (Grey Wolf Optimization) and SDE (Shuffled Differential Evolution) mechanism of economic load dispatch. The performance is compared in the terms of total cost incurred and level of power generation.
