Stability Enhancement of Power System with UPFC Using Hybrid TLBO Algorithm

Madhubalan, S ; Padma, S ; Abdul Shabeer, H


Power sector's complexity has been increasing due to rising demand—distributed generation and deregulation have greatly increased the complexity of the power system. Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System (FACTS) devices improve the quality of power by increasing the power transfer capability. This paper proposes an optimal power flow analysis using a Modified Teaching Learning Based Optimization (MTLBO) algorithm followed by an optimal placement of UPFC in the system. The proposed analysis has been validated and implemented on an IEEE 30 bus system.
