Problem statement: Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) and Static Var Compensator (SVC) have been individually applied to improve stability of power system. Approach: This study presents the coordination of a TCSC and SVC for improving power system stability. The swing curves of the three phase faulted power system with various cases are tested and compared. Results: The swing curve of system without FACTS devices has undamped oscillation. The system with a TCSC or a SVC can increase damping of power system whereas the system with coordination of a TCSC and a SVC provides the best results of stability improvement Conclusion: From the simulation results, the stability of power system can be much better improved by coordination control of a TCSC and a SVC.
