Biological Particle Swarm, Reactive Power Optimization, Transmission Loss

Abstract [English]

This paper presents Advanced Particle Swarm Optimization (APSO) algorithm for solving optimal reactive power problem. In this work Biological Particle swarm Optimization algorithm utilized to solve the problem by eliminating inferior population & keeping superior population, to make full use of population resources and speed up the algorithm convergence. Projected Advanced Particle Swarm Optimization (APSO) algorithm has been tested on standard IEEE 30 bus test system and simulation results shows clearly about the superior performance of the proposed Advanced Particle Swarm Optimization (APSO) algorithm in reducing the real power loss and static voltage stability margin (SVSM) Index has been enhanced.
