This paper proposes a new Modified Flower Pollination algorithm (MFPA) for solving economic load dispatch (ELD) problems in which transmission power losses are taken into consideration. The MFPA is developed in this paper by modifying the several modifications on the conventional Flower Pollination algorithm (FPA) to enhance the performance of the FPA. The MFPA is tested on a system with the transmission power losses. The performance of the MFPA is evaluated by comparing obtained results with FPA and other existing algorithms available in the study. As a result, it can be concluded that the MFPA outperforms the PFA and is very strong for solving the ELD problem.
