Abstract: Power system operation can sometime operate under heavily loaded conditions which may lead to real power and reactive power loss, voltage deviation or even system collapse. This can occur mainly due to booming demand of electricity. This paper proposed a new methodology of integrating both Double Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) and Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) in a modified 30 bus system to overcome those problems. Particle Swarm Optimization technique (PSO) is used to find out the optimal location of DFIG and UPFC thereby reducing these losses and stabilizing the voltage levels (0.9 per unit-1.1 per unit). PSAT toolbox is used in MATLAB platform to perform the power flow analysis. Final results show that the optimal location is achieved with sufficient reduction in power loss, better control over voltage profile and with better convergence from PSO algorithm.
