This paper presents a Bees Algorithm (BA) to seek the optimal allocation of FACTS devices in deregulated power system. The optimizations are made on three parameters: the location of the devices, their types and their sizes. The FACTS devices are located in order to enhance the available transfer capability (ATC) between source and sink area. Four types of FACTS controllers are used and modeled for steady state studies, namely; TCSC, SVC, UPFC and TCPST. Simulations are performed on an IEEE118 bus power system for single and multi-type FACTS devices. A Genetic Algorithm (GA) configured to the same purpose is used for validation. Results show the difference of efficiency of the devices used in this situation. They also show that simultaneous use of several kinds of controllers is the most efficient solution to increase the ATC. The results also indicate that a Bees Algorithm can be competently used for nonlinear optimization with faster convergence compared to GA.
