This paper presents a non traditional optimization technique, genetic algorithm to seek the optimal allocation, type and size of FACTS devices to control line flows, to maintain bus voltage to desired level and to minimize system losses. The targeted objectives are maximizing the static security margins and voltage stability while minimizing losses. Congestion management is also done by optimally placing FACTS controllers with line outage. Matlab coding has been developed for the purpose of simulation. Assessments are done on IEEE 30 bus system against different loading conditions with two FACTS devices SVC and TCSC implemented in steady state and the results verify the potency of propound algorithm to find the optimal location for power system stability.
