Abstract: This paper aims on improving the stability of a 9 bus power system under fault condition using coordination of FACTS device. Flexible A.C. transmission system (FACTS) can be regulated reliable with faster output and can improve local power grid status with control with appropriate control strategies in very small time period. Based on that, a particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm was executed, to design the coordinated parameter of static VAR compensator (SVC) and Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC). Simulation is performed on WSCC 9-bus system in MATLAB software. When 3 phase fault is applied near to generator, frequency and rotor angle changes accordingly. With coordinated control of FACTS devices with PSO has implemented both, near to its normal condition. PSO performed in this paper was structured on identifying the values of L and C of SVC and TCSC, for superior coordination.
