In this paper, Amplified Flower Pollination (AFP) algorithm is proposed to solve optimal reactive power problem.Proposed method integrates the standard Flower Pollination algorithm (FP) with the chaotic Harmony Search (HS) algorithm to improve the Exploration & Exploitation. Chaotic sequences in Harmony search Algorithm is helpful to progress the consistency of the global optimality, and it augment the quality of the result. Proposed Amplified Flower Pollination (AFP) algorithm been tested in standard IEEE 30 bus system. Simulation results show clearly the better performance of the proposed Amplified Flower Pollination (AFP) algorithm in reducing the real power loss and voltage profiles are within the limits.
