The Optimal Power Flow (OPF) is an important criterion in today's power system operation and control due to scarcity of energy resources, increasing power generation cost and ever growing demand for electric energy. As the size of the power system increases, load may be varying. The generators should share the total demand plus losses among themselves. The sharing should be based on the fuel cost of the total generation with respect to some security constraints. Conventional optimization methods that make use of derivatives and gradients are, in general, not able to locate or identify the global optimum.
