This paper describes optimal location and sizing of static var compensator (SVC) based on Particle Swarm Optimization for minimization of transmission losses considering cost function. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is population-based stochastic search algorithms approaches as the potential techniques to solving such a problem. For this study, static var compensator (SVC) is chosen as the compensation device. Validation through the implementation on the IEEE 30-bus system indicated that PSO is feasible to achieve the task. The simulation results are compared with those obtained from Evolutionary Programming (EP) technique in the attempt to highlight its merit.
