Very few publications have been focused on the mathematical modeling of Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) -devices in optimal power flow analysis. A Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitors (TCSC) model has been proposed, and the model has been implemented in a successive QP. The mathematical models for TCSC have been established, and the Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem with these FACTS-devices is solved by Newton’s method. This article employs the Newton- based OPF-TCSC solver of MATLAB Simulator, thus it is essential to understand the development of OPF and the suitability of Newton-based algorithms for solving OPF-TCSC problem.
