Decline of Power Loss by Augmented ABC Algorithm

Authors(1) :-Aditya Bumanapalli

This paper presents an algorithm for solving reactive power problem. Artificial Bee Colony algorithm is a global optimization algorithm which is motivated by the foraging behaviour of honey bee swarms. Basic Artificial Bee Colony algorithm (ABC) has the advantages of strong robustness, fast convergence and high flexibility, fewer setting parameters, but it has the disadvantages premature convergence in the later search period and the accuracy of the optimal value which cannot meet the requirements sometimes. The premature convergence issue in Artificial Bee Colony algorithm has been improved by increasing the number of scout and rational using of the global optimal value and by chaotic local Search. The Chaotic local Search ABC (CLABC) algorithm used to solve the reactive power dispatch problem and it has been tested in standard IEEE 30 Bus system.
