OPTIMIZED MAXIMUM LOADABILITY OF POWER SYSTEMS USING AN ENHANCED DYNAMIC JAYA ALGORITHM
The problem of Maximum Loadability of power systems is addressed in this paper using a proposed dynamic JAYA algorithm. The maximum loadability problem is a typical optimization problem in which the maximum loadability point is to be determined optimally. Voltage stability of power systems is maintained by determining the estimated margin between the system operating point and the maximum loadability limit. The basic JAYA algorithm has been introduced to solve foremost optimization problems with small-scaled nature. However, when applied to large-scale, nonlinear and non-convex constrained problems, it showed a poor convergence characteristic. In order to deal with these weaknesses, the original algorithm has been improved by adding some dynamic features to its convergence behavior. The modified algorithm has been presented and validated when applied to well-known typical power systems. The obtained results were compared to the results achieved by other equivalent optimization techniques.
