Abstract

In this paper, Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices are optimally located in a power network to reduce the transmission line losses. FACTS devices are used in transmission system to control the system performance. The location of FACTS devices and the setting of their control parameters are optimized by Grey Wolf Optimization Technique (GWO) to improve the performance of the power network. The FACTS devices namely SVC (Static VAR Compensator) and TCSC (Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator) are considered to reduce transmission line losses. The proposed system is used to control the main parameters namely voltage, phase angle and impedance, which is affecting AC power transmission. Proposed algorithm is tested on IEEE 118 bus system for optical location & sizing of multi type FACTS devices & the system loadability gets improved and the transmission line losses are reduced.
