In the study multi objective optimum power flow problem is solved through chaotic

artificial bee colony algorithm. For the solution of the problem both chaos theory and artificial

algorithm are utilized together. Until today chaos theory has been used with numerous heuristic

methods. The chaos theory is utilized together with artificial bee colony algorithm through its

application on the best individual at the end of the each generation. The artificial bee colony

algorithm is a new population based heuristic algorithm that reaches its global minimum at linear

and non-convex problems in a short while. In this algorithm the source of inspiration is the

nutrition pursuit of the bees in nature. The proposed method is applied to IEEE 30-bus test

system. In order to illustrate the efficiency of chaotic artificial bee colony algorithm the results

are compared with other findings in the literature.
