Currently, Renewable Energy Sources (RES) has become one of the mainstream topics in power system studies and a trend in power generation. These days, the concept of microgrid comes out as the natural alternative to the conventional power systems, which provide an effective and sustainable alternative for the integral use of renewable energies. This paper proposes a convex model of Combined Economic Emission Dispatch (CEED) considering RES in a microgrid environment. A new methodology based on Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) algorithm is implemented on an islanded 3 unit microgrid system comprises of three conventional thermal generators, one wind farm and one solar photovoltaic system to assess the economic impact of inclusion of renewable sources in microgrid for CEED studies. The proposed approach contemplate the proficient operation of a microgrid with minimal pollutant emissions considering various renewable power sources, which makes it a practical methodology to apply in real-time operating conditions. In addition, the results are compared with recent heuristic methods, which allow validating the accuracy and quality of the proposed optimization methodology.
