Reactive Power Compensation Technique in Transmission Lines Using Grenade Explosion Algorithm
S.Tamizhvanan,  Dr. K.Elango
In order to improve the stability of the system and reduce the power system losses, this paper proposes a grenade explosion algorithm for the reactive power compensation by including FACTS devices. The grenade explosion algorithm formulated by assuming that the decision maker which have a fuzzy goal for each of the objective functions. Three objectives function are considered which are improvement of voltage proﬁle, and the minimization of active and reactive transmission losses. This algorithm finds the optimal location of FACTS devices thereby real and reactive power losses and the voltage profile can be improved. The proposed method has been tested on a IEEE 14 bus system in MATLAB-Simulink. The results shows the good performance for the proposed approach
Keywords- real power loss, reactive power loss, UPFC(unified power flow converter), GEA(grenade explosion algorithm)
