This Voltage stability problems increasing day by day because of demand increase. It is very important to analyze the power system with respect to voltage stability. Location of FACTS devices is important for the enhancement of voltage stability. This paper investigates the voltage stability analysis of 14 bus systems by optimally locating Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices. Shunt and series FACTS controllers are introduced in the weakest bus and its effectiveness is assessed by comparing voltage profile and loading margins enhancement. It is shown that best location for static voltage stability margin is the “weakest bus” of the system. Continuation power flow (CPF) is done with PSAT (power system stability analysis Toolbox).
