Shunt FACTS devices are used for controlling transmission voltage, power flow, reducing reactive losses, and damping of power system oscillations for high power transfer levels. In this paper the optimal location of a shunt FACT device is investigated for an actual line model of a transmission line having series compensation at the center. Effect of change in degree of series compensation on the optimal location of the shunt FACTS device to get the highest possible benefit is studied. It is found that the optimal location of the shunt FACTS device varies with the change in the level of series compensation to get the maximum benefit in terms of power transfer capability and stability of the system.
