Abstract: Due to the increasing demand of electricity in ever-growing electricity market, it is necessary to observe the nature of load and map the effects of load uncertainties on the operation of power system. These uncertainties have also led to voltage instability which is sooner or later considered to be a fundamental cause of blackouts. The distributed generation sources can also be regarded as the source of uncertainties at the load ends of power systems. Along with the load uncertainties, wind turbine generation (WTG) and solar plants have also been used as a source of uncertainties in this paper. The load uncertainties have been incorporated in the system by designing a dynamic load flow program. Corresponding to all uncertain inputs critical case has been identified by the singularity property of load flow jacobian. For the optimal load flow a multi-objective optimization problem aiming to constrained objective function to enhance voltage stability, improve stability index value, reduce system losses and increase reactive reserve margins at generator buses has been formulated. Black hole algorithm has been used to achieve the optimal values of control variables and hence optimal load flow. The aforementioned problem has been tested on standard IEEE-14 bus system.
