The paper presents the implementation of Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System Device, for optimizing the Available Transfer Capability. The goal of the optimization is to find the best location of a given number of FACTS devices for loss minimization.The successful application of a device in a power system requires considering not only the Technical Feasibility but also the economical feasibility. IEEE 30-Bus Test Power System has been considered for the study. The Technical Objective of the study is Reduction of Losses by implementing TCSC FACTS device, and the Economical Objective is determining the Cost-Benefit of applying TCSC.
