A technique for improving the convergence characteristic of genetic algorithms and its application to a genetic-based load flow algorithm
This paper is devoted to the development of a technique for the enhancement of the convergence of genetic algorithms. Based on the concept of solution acceleration, a technique is proposed and applied to a constrained-genetic-algorithm load-flow algorithm CGALF recently developed for solving the problem of evaluating the voltage profile and power flow in electric power networks. The enhanced CGALF algorithm is applied to a practical power system to illustrate the effectiveness of the developed method.
