Abstract: This paper proposes optimal location of FACTS devices in power system using Evolutionary algorithms. The location of FACTS controllers, their type and rated values are optimized simultaneously by using the proposed Algorithm. From the FACTS devices family, series device Thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) is considered. The proposed BAT algorithm is a very effective method for the optimal choice and placement of TCSC device to improve the performance of power systems. The proposed algorithm has been applied to IEEE 30 bus system.
Keywords: Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor, Flexible AC Transmission Systems, BAT Algorithm.
