This paper presents a new approach for Economic Dispatch (ED) problems incorporating wind power plant using Modified Particle Swarm Optimization (MPSO) method. As Wind Power Plant increases in power systems, its effects to conventional units should be analyzed. Also the total cost is dependent on wind speed in specific period of time. Therefore, the mathematical techniques are not appropriate to find the global optimum ED. In this paper, MPSO is proposed to deal with wind power plants in ED. To show efficiency of wind power plant in reducing total cost, different simulation scenarios with and without wind power production are simulated
