This paper presents a quantum behaved particle swarm algorithm for solving the multi-objective reactive power dispatch problem .Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is a population-based swarm intellect algorithm that share various similarities with evolutionary computation methods. Yet, PSO is determined by the imitation of a societal psychosomatic metaphor aggravated by cooperative behaviours of bird and other societal organisms instead of, the endurance of the fittest individual. Stimulated by

The simulation results reveal highquality performance of the QPSO in solving an optimal reactive power dispatch problem. In order to appraise the proposed algorithm, it has been tested on IEEE 30 bus system and compared to other algorithms.
