Abstract: Relieving congestion is a major technical issue in power transmission systems. In this paper, simultaneous placement of Thyristor controlled series capacitors (TCSC) and Voltage source converter based distribution generators (VSC-DG) are used for relieving congestion, minimize system cost and maintain the system in secure state. The system has been analyzed in three stages: (i) first stage, the congestions are made in different transmission network by overload and line outages, (ii) second stage, relieving congestion of transmission lines by using TCSC and VSCDG, where these devices are placed simultaneously at their optimal locations, (iii) comparative cost analysis is done between normal and congested systems. The proposed approach is tested on the 62-bus Indian power system network. The optimal solution of the test systems are obtained by genetic algorithm method and its solutions are compared with primal linear programming. All the results are validated through Power World Simulator and GA toolbox in MATLAB.
