This paper presents an Upgraded Binary Bat Algorithm (UBBA) approach for optimal allocation of Phasor Measuring Units (PMUs) in power system network with complete observability. In power system grid network, allocations of Phasor Measuring Units (PMUs) at buses differ in cost on the grounds that the number of branches associated with every bus of the network varies. The weight of all the branches considered in the optimization process to assess the cost for allocation of PMUs. The Bus

UBBA developed in such ways that complete observability of system is obtained with a minimum cost. The proposed UBBA is programmed in MATLAB and simulated on IEEE 14-, 24-, 30-, and 57 -bus systems to obtain optimal allocation of PMUs. In order to describe the advantage of proposed method, its simulation results are analyzed and compared with different strategies available in the literature.
