Abstract: Simple and efficient algorithm is proposed for solving the economic dispatch problem of power system with valve point discontinuities employing a particle swarm optimization based approach. Evolutionary methods such as GA and PSO are known to perform better than conventional gradient based optimization methods for non convex optimization problems. This reactive power management in economic load dispatches plays a vital role in improving power quality of the system. The power compensation and economic load dispatches is major problem in distribution network. The power is maintain the state of the UPQC (Unified power quality conditioner). The UPAC controlled by the STATCOM or DSTATCOM. The performance of the proposed method has been compared with conventional PSO. The effectiveness of the algorithm has been tested on a test system having three generating units.
