FACTS is one aspect of the power electronics revolution that is taking place in all areas of electric energy. FACTS devices can be an alternative to reduce the flows in heavily loaded lines, resulting in an increased loadability, low system loss, improved stability of the network, reduced cost of production and fulfilled contractual requirement by controlling the power flows in the network. This paper investigates a methodology for placement of thyristor controlled phase angle regulator (TCPAR) in order to relieve congestion in the transmission lines while increasing static security margin and voltage profile of a given power system. Sensitivity-Based Methodology is opted for finding the optimal location The effectiveness of the purposed methods is demonstrated on modified IEEE 30-bus system by using Power World Simulator Software version 12.0.
