Abstract. This paper based on Heuristic method to solve the short-term variable head hydrothermal generation scheduling problem. It uses Heuristic search method to find the result of all thermal and hydro power plants optimization. Numerical experiment show, this method to solve the non-linear problem with its available of constraints in acceptable time.
