the real power transfers by maintaining voltage stability and system reliability. It is a critical element for a transmission operator to ensure the reliability of an electric system while minimizing the cost associated with it. Optimum scheduling of reactive power reduces the active power losses in the transmission system.This paper presents a Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm for Reactive Power Optimization problem. In this paper, reactive power optimization function is taken to minimize the real power losses. This paper covers the reactive power optimization problems, different optimization techniques, the basic concept of Particle Swarm Optimization and its algorithm for this problem and results obtained for 6-bus test system and IEEE 30-bus test system for PSO and Newton method.
