Abstract—This article introduces an Adaptive Differential Evolution (ADE) method for dealing with optimal
reactive power dispatch aiming at power loss reduction. The optimum reactive power dispatch
of power systems is to allocate reactive power control variables so that the objective function
composed of power losses is minimized and the prescribed voltage limits are satisfied. The
proposed method determines the optimum settings of reactive power control variables such as,
generator excitation, tap changing transformers, and SVC that reduces the power loss, while
maintaining the voltage stability. Mathematically, the problem of this research is a nonlinear
programming problem with integer variables. This article presents a new approach that employs
the ADE algorithm to solve the problem. IEEE-30 bus test system from the literature is used to
exemplify the performance of the proposed method. Numerical results show that the proposed
method is better than the other methods.
