TCSC is a FACTS device that can control the active power flow and current of transmission lines by adjusting line impedances. In this paper, we study the effect of TCSC on power transfer capability. A static model of TCSC is implemented in the continuation power-flow(CPF) Program and the power transfer capability is measured using the CPF. The site of TCSC is selected to increase power transfer capability by the sensitivity information provided from the CPF. The effect of TCSC with various control mode is tested in IEEE New England 30-bus system.
