Abstract

The efficient contribution of an optimization
technique for the parameter estimation and suitable
location of FACTS Controller for voltage stability
enhancement and active power loss reduction in power
system network has been presented in this paper. Unified
Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is the most promising
FACTS devices for power flow control. The Particle Swarm
Optimization (PSO) technique is effectively used in this
research for identifying the optimal placement and control
parameter of FACTS device. Finally the voltage profile
enhancement and real power loss reduction has resulted
with the help of suitable placement and control parameter
of UPFC.
