Active power loss reduction by opposition based kidney search algorithm

Kanagasabai Lenin


In this work Opposition based Kidney Search Algorithm (OKS) is used to solve the optimal reactive power problem. Kidney search algorithm imitates the various sequences of functions done by biological kidney. Opposition based learning (OBL) stratagem is engaged to commence the algorithm. This is to make certain high-quality of preliminary population and to expand the exploration steps in case of stagnation of the most excellent solutions. Opposition based learning (OBL) is one of the influential optimization tools to boost the convergence speed of different optimization techniques. The thriving implementation of the OBL engages evaluation of opposite population and existing population in the similar generation to discover the superior candidate solution of a given reactive power problem.  Proposed Opposition based Kidney Search Algorithm (OKS) has been tested in standard IEEE 14, 30, 57,118,300 bus test systems and simulation results show that the proposed algorithm reduced the real power loss efficiently.
