This paper presents an efficient and reliable evolutionary-based approach to solve the optimal power flow (OPF) combinatorial problem. The proposed approach employs Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm for optimal settings of OPF combinatorial problem control variables. Incorporation of ACO as a derivative-free optimization technique in solving OPF problem significantly relieves the assumptions imposed on the optimized objective functions. The proposed approach has been examined and tested… CONTINUE READING
