Abstract :

Reactive power and voltage control plays a very important task in proper operation and control of power system. This paper presents a hyid Genetic Algorithm approach based on Differential Evolution Algorithm for optimal reactive power and voltage control to minimize real power loss in a system. The real power loss has been minimized effectively by the optimal control of control variables based on this approach. In this approach for effective processing the mutation operator of DE is included to avoid the premature convergence. The effectiveness of the proposed approach has been verified on standard IEEE 30 bus test system and it was compared with the existing approach which shows better performance by considerable minimization of real power loss.
