2015 International Journal of Engineering Research and  
In this paper, Particle Swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is used to determine the optimal placement and size of Static Var Compensator in transmission network. The objective function is defined to minimize voltage deviation and power loss and combination of voltage deviation and Power loss. The results are tested on IEEE 5 bus and 14 bus system with the help of MATLAB. Optimal placement of SVC is verified by voltage sensitivity method. Optimal sizing of SVC is verified by Power World Simulator.
