Abstract

An optimal location and parameters of an UPFC along with values of OLTC taps are tuned with a view to minimize the real power losses of a mesh power network. This issue is formulated as a non-linear equality and inequality constrained optimization problem with an objective function incorporating power loss. A new evolutionary algorithm known as Bacteria Foraging is applied for solving, the optimum location and the amount of series injected voltage for the UPFC, and the best values of the taps present in the system. The same problem is also solved with Interior Point Successive Linearization technique using the LINPROG command of MATLAB. A comparison between the two suggests the superiority of the proposed algorithm.
