Optimized Placement of Multiple FACTS Devices using PSO and CSA Algorithms

Basanagouda Patil


This Paper is an attempt to develop a multifacts placement in deregulated power system using optimization algorithms.The optimization algorithms like Particle Swarm Optimization(PSO) and Cuckoo Search Algorithm (CSA)are implemented to place the multiple FACTS devices in a power system. Matlab based implementation is carried out by applying Optimal Power Flowwith variation in the bus and the line parameters and the cost as the objective function. The CSA algorithm performed better by getting a lesser cost as the objective. The cost reduction of FACTS as well as generation by placement of different compensator like, Static Var Compensator (SVC),Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC) and Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC). The cost calculation is done on the 3-seller scenario. IEEE 14 bus is taken for 3-seller.
