Enriched Firefly Algorithm for Solving Reactive Power Problem

K. Lenin, B. Ravindhranath Reddy, M. Surya Kalavathi


In this paper, Enriched Firefly Algorithm (EFA) is planned to solve optimal reactive power dispatch problem. This algorithm is a kind of swarm intelligence algorithm based on the response of a firefly to the light of other fireflies. In this paper, we plan an augmentation on the original firefly algorithm. The proposed algorithm extends the single population FA to the interacting multi-swarms by cooperative Models. The proposed EFA has been tested on standard IEEE 30 bus test system and simulation results show clearly the better performance of the proposed algorithm in reducing the real power loss.
