This paper presents an efficient and reliable Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm for solving Reactive power optimization including voltage deviation in Power System. Voltage deviation is the capability of a power system to maintain up to standard voltages at all buses in the system under standard conditions and under being subjected to a disturbance. Reactive power optimization is a complex combinatorial programming problem that reduces power loses and improves voltage profiles in a power system. To overcome this shortcoming, a multi objective PSO is proposed and applied in reactive power optimization on IEEE-30 bus, Here the RPO problem has been formulated as a constrained multi-objective optimization problem by combining of two objective functions (real power loss and voltage profile improvement) linearly shows that the PSO more effectively solve the reactive power optimization problem in power system.
