Optimized placement of multiple FACTS devices using PSO and CSA algorithms

Basanagouda Patil, S. B. Karajgi


This paper is an attempt to develop a multi-facts device placementin deregulated power system using optimization algorithms. The deregulated power system is the recent need in the power distribution as it has many independent sellers and buyers of electricity. The problem of deregulation is the quality of the power distribution as many sellers are involved. The placement of FACTS devices provides the solution for the above problem. There are researches available for multiple FACTS devices. 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 for applying Optimal Power Flow (OPF) with variation in the bus power and the line reactance parameters. The cost function is used as the objective function. The cost reduction of FACTS as well as generation by placement of different compensators 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. The IEEE 14 bus is taken here as 3-seller system.
