Abstract: Complexity of present day power systems working is persistently expanding is a direct result of bigger power exchange over longer distances, more prominent association among interconnected networks, more confuses coordination and collaboration among different power system controllers and less power holds. To fulfill the expanding power need with existing transmission lines, the presentation of FACTS devices turns into an option. This paper discusses and compares different FACTS controllers such as TCPST, TSSC and Dynaflow Controller – a newly introduced member of FACTS family that includes a TCPST, a multi module TSSC with coordinated control. The purpose of this work is minimization of fuel cost and loss reduction with OPF utilizing PMBCA based hybrid evolutionary optimization method. The adequacy of the proposed methodology with FACTS controllers to meet the objective function was tested on IEEE 30-bus standard test system under MATLAB program
Keywords: FACTS Controllers, TCPST, TSSC, Dynaflow Controller, PMBCA .

Scope of the Article: Discrete Optimization
