The Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) device deals with the control of power flow, alternating current of transmission line and immediately respond towards the stability problems of the system. The present paper show that how the FACTS devices enhance the different parameter of the power systems like power transfer capacity of line, system stability etc. In MATLAB a simplified transmission system is modeled and the resultant power (PQ) and voltage profiles are studied as an uncompensated system. Now the same transmission system is simulating with FACTS device i.e. Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC), Fixed Capacitor Thyristor Controlled Reactor (FC-TCR) and Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM). The result obtained after simulation provide the power and voltage profiles, are analyzed as a compensated system. Finally we found that a compensated system have better voltage profile and power flow w.r.t. an uncompensated system.
