Abstract: With the globalization of power market by reducing the installation and operating cost of the power plant with profitable power flow controller leads to successful implementation of optimal power flow through optimal algorithms. Finding the solution of optimal load flow problem with non-linear equation such as Newton’s equation is one of the possible solution. However, applying Newton’s solution to OPF for finding convergence is a little bit tedious and time consuming affecting marginal losses by involving a number of inequalities present in the system. Transmission lines capacity and bus voltage limit are vital safety factors to carry out OPF in any power system The system being operational in normal state is equipped with security measures in order to discern that it is capable of resisting contingencies devoid of any limit contravention . To ensure a consistent power system function, it is essential that the safety of the system is duly accounted for in
