The chief aspect of solving Optimal Reactive Power Dispatch Problem (ORPD) is to minimize the real power loss and also to keep the voltage profile within the limits. In this paper, a new metaheuristic optimizing algorithm that is the simulation of “Grand Salmon Run” (GSR) is developed. The salmon run phenomena is one of the grand annual natural actions occurrence in the North America, where millions of salmons travel through mountain streams for spawn. The proposed GSR has been validated, by applying it on standard IEEE 30 bus test system. The results have been compared to other heuristics methods and the simulation results reveals about the good performance of the proposed algorithm
