Smart grids are the next generation of the power grid system. The transition from power grids to smart grids is to ensure an environmental and economically efficient power system. Smart grids, unlike the traditional power grid, integrate a vast variety of generation sources of electricity into the grid. Hence the complexity of efficiently monitoring the smart grid is high. PMUs are high-speed sensors used for real-time monitoring, protecting and control of the power system. Data from PMU assists in providing reliable and continuous power supply. However, placing PMUs at all the buses of a power system is economically infeasible. Optimal PMU Placement (OPP) has been an area of high interest as it focuses on finding the minimum PMUs required without compromising on maximum system observability. Meta-Heuristic algorithms have been widely used in the OPP problem. Various algorithms of heuristic were applied in both power systems and smart grids to the OPP problem. The need to adapt to the changing environment from power grids to smart grids adds more complexity to the heuristic algorithms. This paper provides the literature review of the heuristic algorithm for OPP in power grids and smart grids. This paper reviews six well-established heuristic algorithms along with their enhanced and modified version for OPP in power grids and its suitability to smart grids applications. This review will be of interest to researchers and industries who are researching in power grids and the upcoming area of smart grids and PMU placements.
