The issue of ORPD (Optimal Reactive Power Dispatch) for enhancing security and economy of a power system has been given substantial consideration in recent days. The major inspiration behind deploying an ORPD system for enhancing power system eﬃciency is to reallocate the RP (reactive power) in such a manner that power loss be minimized, and voltage proﬁles get enhanced. Hence, this paper concerns the major objectives, namely, reduction of power loss and voltage deviation that are related to solving ORPD problem under unbalanced condition. To attain these objectives, an amalgamation of two algorithms, called CS (Cuckoo Search) and GWSO (Glow Worm Swarm), is adopted for optimizing, and hence the proposed model is referred to as CP-GWSO. This algorithm functions with the control parameters, namely load reactance, voltage and transformer tap settings that are tuned to attain the optimum outcome. The entire empirical part of the investigations is performed on two IEEE standard test bus systems, the IEEE 14 and the IEEE 39 bus systems. Finally, the proposed scheme is compared to the conventional methods, and its eﬃciency is conﬁrmed.
