Modern power system is getting much more complicated and heavily loaded than ever before. With the increased loading of existing power transmission systems due to increased demand the problem of voltage stability along with voltage collapse has become a major concern in power system operation, control and planning. In this paper the offshore wind farm and seashore wave farm are integrated to have the potential of large energy production and is given to an onshore power grid through an UPFC. An UPFC is designed using APSO-PI controller to simultaneously achieve power-fluctuation mitigation and dynamic stability improvement. Fast tuning of optimum PI controller parameters yields high-quality solution. It is able to conclude from the simulation results that the UPFC joined with the APSO-PI Controller can effectively achieve the power –fluctuation mitigation and dynamic stability improvement.
