Abstract

Refined ABC algorithm (RABC) proposed in this paper to solve the optimal reactive power problem. An artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm is one of copious swarm intelligence algorithms that employ the foraging behavior of honeybee colonies. To progress the convergence performance and search speed of finding the best solution RABC algorithm has been developed. The main objective in this problem is to minimize the real power loss and also to keep the variables within the specified limits. Proposed Refined ABC (RABC) algorithm has been tested in standard IEEE 118 & practical 191 bus test systems and simulations results reveal about the better performance of the proposed Refined ABC algorithm (RABC) algorithm in reducing the real power loss and the voltage profiles within the limits.
