Reactive power optimization (RPO) in a power system is a rudimentary necessity for the reduction of the loss of power. For the requirement of a unity power factor in the RPO system, the reduction of the system losses is ensured. The pivotal requirements of a power system are inclusive of a perfect compensation technique and methodology for stable reactive power compensation. The proposed concept in this paper utilizes the different reactive power optimization algorithms and performs a comparison. The process is accomplished by the use of IEEE 6-bus, 14-bus, and 30-bus systems to test the optimization technique. The conclusive information reinforces the outperformance of the based optimization algorithm to the other algorithm, thereby providing high stability to the system. The algorithm ensures the confinement of the voltage profile of the system within the permissible limits.
