Diminution of factual power loss by enhanced bacterial foraging optimization algorithm

Kanagasabai Lenin


This paper presents an enhanced bacterial foraging optimization (EBFO)algorithm for solving the optimal reactive power problem. Bacterial foraging optimization is based on foraging behaviour of Escherichia coli bacteria which present in the human intestine. Bacteria have inclination to congregate the nutrient-rich areas by an action called as Chemo taxis. The bacterial foraging process consists of four chronological methods i.e. chemo taxis, swarming and reproduction and elimination-dispersal. In this work rotation angle adaptively and incessantly modernized, which augment the diversity of the population and progress the global search capability. The quantum rotation gate is utilized for chemo taxis to modernize the state of chromosome projected EBFO algorithm has been tested in standard IEEE 14,300 bus test system and simulation results show the projected algorithm reduced the real power loss extensively.
