The crucial factor affecting the modern power systems today is load flow control. The unified power flow controller (UPFC) is an effective means for controlling the power flow and can provide damping capability during transient conditions. The UPFC is controlled conventionally using PI controllers. The optimal design of the PI controllers for a UPFC is a challenging task and time consuming using the conventional techniques. This paper presents an approach using particle swarm optimization (PSO) for the design of optimal conventional controllers for a UPFC in a multimachine power system. Simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed PSO based approach for the design of optimal conventional controllers for a UPFC in a multimachine power system.
