This is the result of a long and elaborate research process, as the articles published on Energy, which have very high requirements for novelty and pioneering.
This study proposed a high-performance Social Spider algorithm (HPSSA) to independently optimize electricity generation fuel cost, power loss, polluted emission, voltage deviation and L index for transmission power networks. The performance of the proposed HPSSA method is evaluated by testing on three IEEE systems with 30, 57 and 118 buses. As a result, the proposed method has advantages over its conventional method such as simpler application, fewer number of control parameters, spend less time tuning control parameter values, faster convergence to optimal solutions and more stable search ability. In addition, the proposed method's results are also compared to other existing methods and the indications are that the proposed method can find better optimal solutions, use lower number of generated solutions and faster convergence. The proposed method can be a good method for applications in other fields or other problems in power systems.
