This paper proposed the Lagrangian optimization model for Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem. It is designed by relaxing the constraints from the Quadratic Programming (QP) problem. The objective of this model is to minimize the total cost of active power generation. The solution of QP is obtained by different optimization techniques like Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) method, Genetic Algorithm (GA), Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm. In this paper, the optimum value of QP is obtained by the proposed model and it is compared with other methods PSO, GA, DE. The results of the methods have been tested through the standard IEEE 30 bus system. Based on numerical calculations and graphical representation, the optimal generation cost for OPF can be achieved.
