Advanced teaching-learning-based optimization algorithm for actual power loss reduction

Lenin Kanagasabai


In this work Advanced Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization algorithm (ATLBO) is proposed to solve the optimal reactive power problem. Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization (TLBO) optimization algorithm has been framed on teaching learning methodology happening in classroom. Algorithm consists of “Teacher Phase”, “Learner Phase”. In the proposed Advanced Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization algorithm non-linear inertia weighted factor is introduced into the fundamental TLBO algorithm to manage the memory rate of learners. In order to control the learner’s mutation arbitrarily during the learning procedure a non-linear mutation factor has been applied. Proposed Advanced Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization algorithm (ATLBO) has been tested in standard IEEE 14, 30 bus test systems and simulation results show the proposed algorithm reduced the real power loss effectively.
