A genetic approach for the optimal placement of FACTS devices
"The electric utility restructuring and the open access in recent years has resulted in overloading the transmission network of the power system. The process of mitigating the transmission line overloads for all single contingencies is done by the optimal placement of power flow control devices like FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) devices. FACTS devices like UPFC (Unified Power Flow Controller), which can control the power flow by changing the impedance of the line, are used in this project. The optimization for the placement of FACTS devices is done by using the genetic algorithm."--Abstract, page iii.
