Optimal Allocation of FACTS Devices by Using Multi-Objective Optimal Power Flow and Genetic Algorithms

The introduction of the Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) in the power system reduces the losses, reduces the cost of the generation, improves the stability and also improves the load capability of the system. Some application of the Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) technologies to existing high voltage power system has proves the use of FACTS technology may be a cost effective option for power delivery system enhancement. Amongst various power electronic devices Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) may be considered to be a capable of regulating the power flow and minimizing the power loss simultaneously.
