Power flow (PF) is in one of the most studied non-linear problems related to power systems which heavily affects security issues such as generation cost, voltage stability and active power loss. In this paper, a simple and new approach based on artificial neural network (ANN) and differential search (DSA) algorithm has been proposed and applied for one of the most complex problems in power systems, Power Flow (PF) problem. By using the proposed DSA implemented ANN method, IEEE 9-bus, IEEE 30-bus and IEEE 118-bus test system parameters are obtained without running iterative convergence methods such as Gauss-Siedel or Newton-Raphson. By comparing with several most used non-linear iterative methods, the results obtained using the classical training method and proposed DSA implemented hybrid training methods are presented and discussed. Obtained results in this work show that the ANN based power flow method can be implemented to solve non-linear static and dynamical problems concerning power systems successfully.
