Optimal Power Flow(OPF) faces challenges of convergence and local minima. This paper reviews nomenclature and literature of both OPF and metaphor-based heuristic optimization, emphasizing Cockroach Swarm Optimization (CSO). Then the paper investigates CSO as applied to OPF. The solution is tested on the benchmark systems such as IEEE 9 bus system using Matpower.
