This study focuses on the improvement of optimization model by applying particle swarm optimization and firefly algorithm methods to get a stable power production utility at its maximum level. Furthermore, it investigates on the minimization of utility loss in power production from the hydropower system, which is done by optimizing the variables of operation control in the hydropower plant at Lake Himreen - Diyala Dam. The variables mentioned are net turbine head, the rate of water flow and power production which had been gathered in the data during a research throughout a 10-year period. The results obtained from these two methods, namely Firefly Algorithm (FA) and Particle Swarm Optimization, (PSO) are compared. The inferences for general comparisons are created through several behavior indicators. The behavior indicators illustrate that FA's performance is better than PSO's performance, in some fields. At the end, the results show the strength of FA, as well as its efficiency and superiority.
