The main objective of SCOPF algorithm is to find steady state operation point, which helps in minimizes generation cost, start up cost, loss etc. or maximizes load-ability, social welfare while maintaining the system performance by considering the limits on generator's real and reactive powers, security constraints, line flow limits, etc. The classical optimization methods were used to effectively solve OPF. But more recently due to the deregulation of a power sector and incorporation of FACTS devices the earlier concept of power systems is in-cooperated by an economic market management. Thus OPF problem solving have become complex. To overcome this Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods have been emerged.
