Nowadays, improvement in power system performance is essential to obtaine economic and technical benifits. To achieve this, optimize the large number of parameters in the system based on optimal power flow(OPF). For solving OPF problem efficiently, it needs robust and fast optimization techniques. This paper proposes the application of a newly developed hybrid Whale and Sine Cosine optimization algorithm to solve the OPF. It has been implemented for optimization of the control variables. The reduction of true power generation cost, emission, true power losses, and voltage deviation are considered as different objectives. The hybrid Whale and Sine Cosine optimization is validated by solving OPF problem with various intentions using IEEE30 bus system. To varidate the proposed technique, the results obtained from this are compared with other methods in the literature. The robustness achieved with the proposed algorithm has been analyzed for the considered OPF problem using statistical analysis and whisker plots.
