Polar wolf optimization algorithm for solving optimal reactive power problem

Kanagasabai Lenin


This paper proposes polar wolf optimization (PWO) algorithm to solve the optimal reactive power problem. Proposed algorithm enthused from actions of polar wolves. Leader’s wolves which denoted as xα are accountable for taking judgment on hunting, resting place, time to awaken etc. second level is xβ those acts when there is need of substitute in first case. Then xγ be as final level of the wolves. In the modeling social hierarchy is developed to discover the most excellent solutions acquired so far. Then the encircling method is used to describe circle-shaped vicinity around every candidate solutions. In order to agents work in a binary space, the position modernized accordingly. Proposed PWO algorithm has been tested in standard IEEE 14, 30, 57,118,300 bus test systems and simulation results show the projected algorithms reduced the real power loss considerably.
