Abstract: FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) means a whole family of controllers and devices for increase the use and flexibility of power systems. These controllers are installed in many places and improving the capabilities of different power systems.. This paper presents a review on the research and developments in the area of FACTS controllers and their contributions. This paper will treat benefits of FACTS devices installed in power systems such as increment in power transmission capability and a reduction in transmission losses. And improved transient and dynamic stability, This paper also includes the main barriers of voltage instability and power transmission structure. Authors strongly believe that this survey article will be very much useful to the researchers for finding out the relevant references in the field of voltage stability improvement by using FACTS controllers.
