Abstract

Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem is an optimization tool through which secure and economic operating conditions of power system is obtained. In recent years, Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices, have led to the development of controllers that provide controllability and flexibility for power transmission. Series FACTS devices such as Thyristor controlled series compensators (TCSC), with its ability to directly control the power flow can be very effective to power system security. Thus, integration TCSC in the OPF is one of important current problems and is a suitable method for better utilization of the existing system. This paper is applied Cuckoo Optimization Algorithm (COA) for the solution of the OPF problem of power system equipped with TCSC. The proposed approach has been examined and tested on the IEEE 30-bus system. The results presented in this paper demonstrate the potential of COA algorithm and show its effectiveness for solving the OPF problem with TCSC devices over the other evolutionary optimization techniques.
