Abstract: Power system networks are becoming interconnected for the purpose of power delivery to decrease the overall power generation cost. With insufficient control, the power systems become more complicated to function and less secure. The economics of AC power transmission have always forced the planning engineers to transmit as much power as possible through a given transmission line. The smaller and thermally limited lines are crowded in many networks while other higher capacity lines run well below their thermal maximum. When series capacitors are introduced in the higher voltage cables, power may be transferred from the overloaded lines, maximizing the use of the existing line as well as complementing the performance of the power system. In this paper, a three-line meshed power system network with different thermal line limits is considered for the purpose of showing effective utilization of line network for maximum power flow through the intended line with series capacitor compensation. The simulations are performed by using PowerWorld simulator confirms the addition of series capacitor increases the power transfer through the line up to its thermal limit.
