Abstract

The aspect of this study is to compare the three different algorithms such as Genetic Algorithm (GA), Enhanced Genetic Algorithm (EGA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to fine the optimal location of the FACTS device in the transmission line. The FACTS devices Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC) and Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) are selected based on the steady stability state and dynamic stability state. Each of the algorithms is coded in MATLAB and incorporated it with the conventional Newton Raphson’s load flow analysis. To find the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm IEEE 14-bus system is taken as the test system.
