Security Constrained Optimal Power Flow Using Self-Organizing Hierarchical PSO with Time-Varying Acceleration Coefficients


Jirawadee Polprasert1, Weerakorn Ongsakul1, and Dieu Vo Ngoc2,*

This paper proposes a self-organizing hierarchical particle swarm optimization (SOHPSO) with time-varying acceleration coefficients (TVAC) for solving security constrained optimal power flow (SCOPF) problem. The SCOPF is to minimize a total generation cost while satisfying generator operational constraints and network security constraints in which the minimum severity index is used to alleviate line loading. The proposed SOHPSO-TVAC re-initializes particle velocities whenever the population stagnates at local optima during the search and TVAC is used to enhance convergence to the global optimum solution. Test results on the IEEE 30 and 118 bus systems indicate that the proposed SCOPF renders a lower total generation cost in a faster convergence rate than the other heuristic methods, which is favorable for online implementation.
