The Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) is one of the converter based Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTSs) device. This paper presents a new Intelligent Search Evolution Algorithm (ISEA) to solve Security Constrained Optimal Power Flow (SCOPF) problem with SSSC. Unlike the SCOPF solution methods existing in the literature, in the proposed algorithm, two-step initialization process have been adopted and the mutation operation is not required. Further, it gives optimal solution with less number of generations.
