Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) Thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC)


Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) devices represent a recent technological development in electrical power systems. FACTS devices offer so many advantages like transient stability improvement, sub-synchronous resonance (SSR) mitigation, damping of power swings, avoiding voltage collapse, enhancing power system reliability, minimize the loss in power system. Though FACTS controllers offer many advantages, their installation cost is very high. Hence the optimal placement and the optimal parameter settings of these devices in the power system are of important issues. In this paper analytical method is proposed to find optimal location and optimal parameter setting considering power loss minimization in power system. The proposed method is carried out on IEEE-14bus power system
