In this paper, the authors present a differential evolution algorithm approach to solve Security Constrained Optimal Power Flow (SCOPF) problem in power system including FACTS device. In this process, under a line outage the generation cost is to be minimized and to keep the power flow in their security limits, in addition to that the losses is to be minimized after installing the FACTS device. A versatile FACTS device Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is considered as a combination of SVC and TCSC .The operating limit of the FACTS device is defined not only to minimize the total generation cost but also to reduce transmission loss.
