The primary goal of Optimal Power flow problem is to deliver power at a cheapest cost and simultaneously maintaining the voltage profile, minimizing losses and provide reactive power support. In this paper optimal power flow problem is solved using Flower pollination algorithm. The main goal of this optimization is to minimize the fuel cost and power loss in short computational time satisfying the constraints. The ability of this method is tested on standard IEEE 30 bus test system. Comparative analysis of the proposed FPA algorithm with the existing algorithm results reveals that proposed algorithm exhibit significant improvement in terms of fuel cost, loss and voltage profile.
