This paper investigates a novel nature-inspired algorithm called as multi-verse optimizer (MVO) used for solving optimization problem in power system 39-bus system. The main objective in this paper is the dynamic stability analysis using static synchronous (STATCOM) and power system stabilizer (PSS). The power system disturbance occurs mainly due to three-phase fault. The voltage profile and system stability are affected. It needs PSS controller to compensate and to improve the stability after the disturbances. The STATCOM location is vital and should be optimized to place certain point in the network for maximum benefit of the system. The different operating conditions are considered: without STATCOM, PSS, with STATCOM, PSS and STATCOM, and PSS tuned by MVO algorithm. It is analyzed by PSAT software. It shows that MVO gives novel optimization values in the systems.
