The paper proposes a new modified Bat algorithm (MBA) for solving combined economic and emission load dispatch (CEED) problems where transmission power losses are considered. The MBA is first developed in the paper by modifying the several modifications on the conventional Bat algorithm (BA) in aim to improve the performance of the BA. The MBA is tested on two different systems with the transmission power losses. The performance of the MBA is evaluated by comparing obtained results with BA and other existing algorithms available in the study. As a result, it can be concluded that the MBA outperforms the BA and is very strong for solving the CEED problem.
