Improved Brain Storm Optimization, Optimal Reactive Power, Transmission Loss

Abstract [English]

This paper proposes Improved Brain Storm Optimization (IBSO) algorithm is used for solving reactive power problem. predictably, optimization algorithm stimulated by human being inspired problem-solving procedure should be highly developed than the optimization algorithms enthused by collective deeds of ants, bee, etc. In this paper, a new Improved brain storm optimization algorithm defined, which was stimulated by the human brainstorming course of action. In the projected Improved Brain Storm Optimization (IBSO) algorithm, the vibrant clustering strategy is used to perk up the k-means clustering process & exchange of information wrap all ideas in the clusters to accomplish suitable searching capability. This new approach leads to wonderful results with little computational efforts. In order to evaluate the efficiency of the proposed Improved Brain Storm Optimization (IBSO) algorithm, has been tested standard IEEE 30 bus test system and compared to other standard reported algorithms. Simulation results show that Improved Brain Storm Optimization (IBSO) algorithm is superior to other algorithms in reducing the real power loss.
