Abstract: This paper investigates the enhancement of voltage stability using Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC). The continuous demand in electric power system network has caused the system to be heavily loaded leading to voltage instability. Under heavy loaded conditions there may be insufficient reactive power causing the voltages to drop. This drop may lead to drops in voltage at various buses. The result would be the occurrence of voltage collapse which leads to total blackout of the whole system. Flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) controllers have been mainly used for solving various power system stability control problems. In this study, a static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) is used to investigate the effect of this device in controlling active and reactive powers as well as damping power system oscillations in transient mode. The Adaptive neuro fuzzy logic controller is used to tune the circuit and to provide the zero signal error. Results are compared with conventional PI controller. The dynamic performance of SSSC is presented by real time voltage and current waveforms using MATLAB software for IEEE 4 bus system.
