Independent System Operators (ISO) face many challenges while operating the system in order to obtain economic benefits and security. The solution to this problem is known as Security Constrained Optimal Power Flow (SCOPF). SCOPF is a very large-scale and nonlinear optimization problem with many complex constraints. This paper proposes the Sunflower Optimization (SFO) algorithm for solving the SCOPF problem. The proposed method is tested on the IEEE 30-bus and the IEEE 118-bus systems for both normal and outage cases. The result comparison with other known methods showed that the proposed SFO algorithm is an effective method for solving the SCOPF problem in the electricity market.</p>}, number={3}, journal={Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research}, author={Duong, T.
