Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem was solving from the decades with different objectives as the economy was growing. In this paper cost of generation, transmission losses and L-index are taken as three different objectives for optimal operation of power system with and without FACTS device. One of the VSC based multi type FACTS device namely an Interline Power Flow Controller (IPFC) is placed into power system network. The optimization problem has been solved by using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) with power injection model of the FACTS device. The proposed methodology is tested on standard IEEE 30-bus test system and the results are compared for single objective optimization with and without FACTS device.
