This work presents Amplified Black Hole Algorithm (ABHA) for solving optimal reactive power problem. In the projected approach Amplified Black Hole Algorithm (ABHA); Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) is merged with Black Hole Algorithm (BHA). The gravitational force between stars and the progression of stars to the black hole is attuned while explore the solution space. Assumption made that heavy objects are stars in a gravitational system, which become black holes, and exploitation of GSA is enhanced. During the progression of the projected algorithm the radius of the black hole diminishes, and more objects are included, which assist to stop early convergence. Proposed Amplified Black Hole Algorithm (ABHA) has been tested in standard IEEE 14, 30, 57,118,300 bus test systems and simulation results show the projected algorithm reduced the real power loss comprehensively.
