In recent years, the transmission lines are operated under the heavily stressed condition, hence there is a risk of consequent volta ge instability in the power network. There is a multi - functional control device which can be effectively control the load flow distribution and the power transfer capability is the flexible alternating current transmission system (FACTS) device. The facts device performance is depend upon its location and parameter se tting. In this paper the optimal location and optimal sizing of static var compensator (SVC) is studied on the basis of particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique to minimize load voltage magn itude deviations and network losses using particle swarm optimization have been presented . Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is one of the artificial intelligent search approaches which have the potential to solve such problems. For this study, static var compensator (SVC) is chosen as the compensator device. Validation through the implementation on the IEEE 14 bus system shows that the PSO is found feasible to achieve the task.
