This paper presents an efficient and reliable interior point approach to obtain optimal power flow (OPF) problem solution. The Interior Point method (IP) is found to be the most efficient algorithm for optimal power flow solution. The IP algorithm is coded in MATLAB and the performance is tested on IEEE 14 bus test system with fuel cost minimization as objective function. It maintains good accuracy while achieving the high speed of convergence when compared to other known linear programming methods. The solution obtained by this algorithm proves to be robust to solve the OPF problem of power grid.
