This paper presents the transient stability enhancement of a multimachine system using series FACTS controllers. Series FACTS controller devices, i.e. TCSC, SSSC and UPFC, have been used in this paper for enhancing the transient stability of the system. Time-domain simulations are carried on PSAT (power system analysis tool box). The simulation results demonstrate that transient stability improves commendably of the multimachine system by using TCSC, SSSC and UPFC. Eigen value analysis also has been done during prefault condition, fault condition and with series FACTS controllers, i.e. TCSC, SSSC and UPFC. It also been observed that UPFC gives better transient stability enhancement as compared to TCSC and SSSC.
