The power transfer capability has been recently highlighted as a key issue in many utilities with the power system more stressed and heavy loaded. The total transfer capability in the KEPCO power system is determined mainly by the voltage stability limit and many approaches for enhancement of the total transfer capability has been consistently performed. In this paper, a new transfer capability index to locate the STATCOM(Static Synchronous Compensator) effectively for enhancing the total transfer capability from a static voltage stability viewpoint is presented and it is applied to a small scale power system of IEEE 39-bus test system in order to show the effects of this index. In addition, the effect of transient stability as well as voltage stability to the total transfer capability when loads are increased is analyzed using this small scale power system.
