Abstract: The environmental degradation and increased power demand has forced modern power systems to operate at the closest stability boundaries. Thereby, the power systems operations mainly focus for the inclusion of transient stability constraints in an optimal power flow (OPF) problem. Algebraic and differential equations are including in non-linear optimization problems formed by the transient stability constrained based OPF problem (TSCOPF). Notably, for a small to large power systems solving these non-linear optimization problems is a complex task. In order to achieve the increased power carrying capacity by a power line, the Flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) devices provides the best supported means a lot. As a result, even under a network contingency condition, the security of the power system is also highly improved with FACTS devices. The FACTS technology has the potential in controlling the routing of the line power flows and the capability of interconnecting networks making the possibility of trading energy between distant agents. This paper presents a new evolutionary algorithm for solving TSCOPF problems with a FACTS device namely adaptive unified differential evolution (AuDE). The large non-convex and nonlinear problems are solved for achieving global optimal solutions using a new evolutionary algorithm called AuDE. Numerical tests on the IEEE 30-bus 6-generator, and IEEE New England 10-generator, 39-bus system have shown the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed AuDE approach for solving TSCOPF in the presence of a FACTS device such as the SSSC device. Due to the page limitation only 30-bus results are presented.
