Optimal Reactive Power, Transmission Loss, Modified Teaching Learning

Abstract [English]

This paper presents a Modified Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization (MTLBO) algorithm for solving reactive power flow problem. Basic Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization (TLBO) is reliable, accurate and vigorous for solving the optimization problems. Also, it has been found that TLBO algorithm slow in convergence due to its high concentration in the accuracy. This paper presents an, Modified version of TLBO algorithm, called as Modified Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization (MTLBO). A parameter called as “weight” has been included in the fundamental TLBO equations & subsequently it increases the rate of convergence. In order to evaluate the proposed algorithm, it has been tested in practical 191 test bus system. Simulation results reveal about the better performance of the proposed algorithm in reducing the real power loss & voltage profiles are within the limits.
