|This paper presents detailed steady-state models with controls of two Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) controllers, namely, Static Var Compensators (SVCs) and Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitors (TCSCs), to study their e ect on voltage collapse phenomena in power systems. Based on results at the point of collapse, design strategies are proposed for these two controllers, so that their location, dimensions and controls can be optimally de ned to increase system loadability.
