Available Transfer Capability (ATC) improvement and determination are imperative issues in deregulated operation of power systems. This paper investigates the use of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices, like Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) and split TCSC to make best use of power transfer transactions during normal state of affairs. ATC is computed using Continuation Power Flow (CPF) method and AC power transfer distribution factors (ACPTDF) determination. A new plant Root Foraging Algorithm (PRFA) is used as an optimization tool to determine the location and controlling strictures of TCSC and split TCSC. The suggested methodology is tested on IEEE 30-bus and IEEE 57-bus test system.
