Particle Swarm Optimization, Genetic Algorithm, Harmony Search, Optimal Reactive Power, Transmission Loss

Abstract [English]

In this paper, Synthesized Algorithm (SA) proposed to solve the optimal reactive power problem. Proposed Synthesized Algorithm (SA) is a combination of three well known evolutionary algorithms, namely Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm, and Harmony Search (HS) algorithm. It merges the general operators of each algorithm recursively. This achieves both good exploration and exploitation in SA without altering their individual properties. In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed SA, it has been tested in Standard IEEE 57,118 bus systems and compared to other standard reported algorithms. Simulation results show’s that Synthesized Algorithm (SA) successfully reduces the real power loss and voltage profiles are within the limits.
