In this paper Better-Quality Particle Swarm Optimization (BPSO) algorithm is proposed to solve the optimal reactive power Problem. Proposed algorithm is obtained by combining particle swarm optimization (PSO), Cauchy mutation and an evolutionary selection strategy. The idea is to introduce the Cauchy mutation into PSO in the hope of preventing PSO from trapping into a local optimum through long jumps made by the Cauchy mutation. In order to evaluate the efficiency of the proposed Better-Quality Particle Swarm Optimization (BPSO) algorithm, it has been tested on IEEE 57 bus system. Simulation Results show's that BPSO is more efficient than other reported algorithms in reducing the real power loss.
