Title

Evolutionary Optimization of Flexible AC Transmission System Device Placement for Increasing Power Grid Reliability

Abstract

In order to increase the reliability of the nation's power grid, this paper proposes using an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) to optimize the placement of a limited number of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices on power lines. We benchmark against a brute-force placement and compare our EA approach with a greedy algorithm approach suggested by previous research to show that the EA approach results in superior placements.
