In this paper the results of the development of voltage and reactive power regulation algorithm based on the particle swarm method, optimizing the electric power system mode by the level of losses, are presented. To provide an integration of this algorithm into a real system of an automated dispatching control system, the algorithm is implemented using programs, which are used in the System Operator of the Unified Power System of Russia, as well as standard communication protocols and a software platform. The analysis and comparison of the optimization results obtained by the particle swarm method and standard optimization method (gradient descent method), realized in RastrWin, confirm the correctness and reliability of the obtained results and the developed algorithm. At the same time, the algorithm does not depend on the initial conditions (setpoints), set on the control objects, which allows it to be used to optimize the modes of complex power network, finding the balance in which is a time-consuming task. In the future, it is planned to develop an algorithm for optimizing the mode, taking into account the increased stability of the electric power system.
