Particle Swarm Optimization, Real Power Loss, Spatial

Abstract [English]

This paper present’s Dimensioned Particle Swarm Optimization (DPSO) algorithm for solving Reactive power optimization (RPO) problem.  Dimensioned extension is introduced to particles in the particle swarm optimization (PSO) model in order to overcome premature convergence in interactive optimization. In the performance of basic PSO often flattens out with a loss of diversity in the search space as resulting in local optimal solution.  Proposed algorithm has been tested in standard IEEE 57 test bus system and compared to other standard algorithms. Simulation results reveal about the best performance of the proposed algorithm in reducing the real power loss and voltage profiles are within the limits.
