In this paper Timber Wolf optimization (TWO) algorithm is proposed to solve optimal reactive power problem. Timber Wolf optimization (TWO) algorithm is modeled based on the social hierarchy and hunting habits of Timber wolf towards finding prey. Based on their fitness values social hierarchy has been replicated by classifying the population of exploration agents. Exploration procedure has been modeled by imitating the hunting actions of timber wolf by using searching, encircling, and attacking

There are three fittest candidate solutions embedded as a, b and g to lead the population toward capable regions of the exploration space in each iteration of Timber Wolf optimization. Proposed Timber Wolf optimization (TWO) algorithm has been tested in standard IEEE 14, 30 bus test systems and simulation results show the projected algorithm reduced the real power loss efficiently.
