The optimal power flow issue is one of the most important problems faced by dispatching engineers regarding large scale power systems. It is a particular mathematical approach of the global power system optimization problem that aims at determining the least control movements to keep power system at the most desired state. Thus, it represents a flexible and powerful tool, which can address a wide range of planning and operation studies. However, the complexity of optimal power flow increases dramatically with large-scale networks, which often discourages the utilization of this powerful tool in many applications. This paper proposes a new intelligent approach to facilitate the implementation of the optimal power flow calculations to be utilized in various control centres. A main advantage of the proposed intelligent systems with real control centres is the possibility of controlling the system voltage profile in a tracking mode. The simulation results using this intelligent system when applied to the IEEE 30-bus power network emphasize the validity and effectiveness of the proposed technique.
