Acridoidea Stirred Artificial Bee Colony (ASA) Algorithm is applied to solve the power loss reduction problem. In the projected algorithm natural Acridoidea jumping phenomenon has been imitated and the modeled design has been intermingled with artificial bee colony algorithm. In the proposed algorithm, the position update has been done through the distance of jumping done by Acridoidea. The distance (D) is horizontal (h) with angle (θ), velocity (V) parameter amplifying the rate which is based on the gravity of Ballistic projectile. Normally, the angle will be 45◦ horizontal and it depends on the take-off velocity. ASA algorithm has been tested in standard IEEE 57 bus test system and results show that the proposed ASA algorithm reduced the real power loss effectively.
