Ant Colony Search Algorithm for Optimal Reactive Power Optimization

  title={Ant Colony Search Algorithm for Optimal Reactive Power Optimization},
  author={K. Lenin and Mr Ravi Mohan},
The paper presents an (ACSA) Ant colony search Algorithm for Optimal Reactive Power Optimization and voltage control of power systems. ACSA is a new co-operative agents’ approach, which is inspired by the observation of the behavior of real ant colonies on the topic of ant trial formation and foraging methods. Hence, in the ACSA a set of co-operative agents called “Ants” co-operates to find good solution for Reactive Power Optimization problem. The ACSA is applied for optimal reactive power… CONTINUE READING
