Abstract: Now a day technological development in power electronics based controllers formerly known as Flexible AC Transmission Controllers (FACTS), the power system can operate with high security. These controllers help to enhance the transmission line loadings in terms of its thermal ratings. The line loadings and bus voltage profiles can be controlled using these FACTS controllers. To analyze the effect of the FACTS devices, these controllers should be incorporated in a given system and the load flow analysis is performed using Newton Raphson (NR) method. In this paper, very popularly used FACTS controllers known for Static VAr Compensator (SVC) and Thyristor Controlled Series Compensator (TCSC) are considered. The effect of these devices on system bus voltages, line power flows and system power losses is analyzed on standard test system such as HALE network and IEE-30 bus test systems are considered.
