Finding the optimal power flow which is achieved economic and technical aims is one of the important problems in the power system operation. This issue is attracted a lot of attention from researchers in recent years. In this paper, the Equilibrium optimizer (EO) algorithm is proposed to solve the optimal power flow (OPF) problem with various target functions such as cost reduction of fuel and emissions, minimizes power loss, minimizes voltage deviation, and improves voltage stability. The proposed EO method is tested on the standard IEEE 30 bus system and compared with the other methods as PSO, DE, ABC, and GWO that is show the ability and strength of the algorithm in solving OPF problems.
