This research examines the application of Genetic Algorithms (GAs) and Machine Learning (ML) in tackling the Optimal Power Flow (OPF) issue inside control frameworks. The study points to playing down operational costs whereas assembly operational imperatives through the optimization of control factors. Tests were conducted comparing GAs, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Bolster Vector Machines (SVM), and Neural Networks (NN). The comes about uncovered that GAs reliably outflanked other calculations, illustrating predominant merging speed and accomplishing lower add up to costs. The research contributes experiences into the viability of GAs in exploring the complex and non-convex arrangement space of the OPF issue. Comparative investigations with related works assist fortified the competitive execution of the proposed Genetic Algorithm approach. This consideration not only propels the understanding of control framework optimization but also gives profitable suggestions for the broader application of GAs and ML procedures over differing spaces. The research highlights the potential for crossover approaches and the integration of real-time information to enhance versatility and vigor within the setting of keen networks and feasible vitality systems.
