In this work Ant colony optimization algorithm (ACO) & particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm has been hybridized (called as APA) to solve the optimal reactive power problem. In this algorithm, initial optimization is achieved by particle swarm optimization algorithm and then the optimization process is carry out by ACO around the best solution found by PSO to finely explore the design space. In order to evaluate the proposed APA, it has been tested on IEEE 300 bus system and compared to other standard algorithms. Simulations results show that proposed APA algorithm performs well in reducing the real power loss.
