Viral System, Transmission Loss, Reactive Power Problem

Abstract [English]

This paper presents Viral Systems Algorithm (VSA) for solving optimal reactive power problem. VSA have proven to be very efficient when dealing with problems of high complexity. The virus infection expansion corresponds to the feasibility region exploration, and the optimum corresponds to the organism lowest fitness value. Many available algorithms usually present weaknesses and cannot guarantee the optimum output for the problem in a bounded time. Projected Viral Systems Algorithm (VSA) has been tested on standard IEEE 30 bus test system and simulation results show clearly about the superior performance of the proposed Viral Systems Algorithm (VSA) in reducing the real power loss and static voltage stability margin (SVSM) index has been enhanced.
