Now a day, there exists huge competition among power industries in terms of fulfilling various customers’ electrical needs. Reliable and quality power supply is no doubt a basic need for all power consumers. Moreover, planning & operation engineers also targets for proper unit commitment, economic power dispatch, etc., and highly depend upon good power system planning. Therefore, Electric Forecasting (EF) is a major criterion for power engineers. In this manuscript, Artificial Neural Network (ANN), being a well established tool for modeling non-linear and black box systems, is used to forecast hydro generation power plant, energy met and peak demand of India. Furthermore, in this competitive world, ANN model is further optimized using genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) to explore accurate forecasting model with minimal amount of error. These optimization methods explore highly diversified search area, resulting in more accurate forecasting results in comparison to ANN when trained with standard back propagation training algorithm.
