In an A.C transmission system power flow can be controlled using TCSC. This paper presents a brief idea on load flow in power system, bus classification, improving stability of power system, advantages of using TCSC in series compensation. The application of series compensation provides a smoothly variable series capacitor reactance in transmission line which is useful for improving the real power flow [1].It presents the modeling scheme of TCSC and the advantages of using it in power flow network. The results obtained after simulation of network using MATLAB both with and without TCSC gives clear idea of various merits of use of reactive power compensators. This project concentrates on control the power flow effectively through line using TCSC and enhances system stability [2].
