This paper presents novel corrective control actions to alleviate overloads in transmission lines by the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) method. Generator rescheduling and/or load shedding is performed locally, to restore the system from abnormal to normal operating state. The appropriate identification of generators and load buses to perform the corrective control action is an important task for the operators. A new Direct Acyclic Graph (DAG) technique for selection of participating generators and buses with respect to a contingency is presented. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated with the help of the IEEE 30 bus system. The result shows that the proposed approach is computationally fast, reliable and efficient, in restoring the system to normal state after a contingency with minimal control actions.
