This paper deals with power system network contingency due to branch overloading and voltage violation. It leads to insecure conditions like block outs in power system. In order to provide proper security in power system by alleviate overloads Flexible AC Transmission system (FACTS) is widely used. The location is then identified using single real power flow performance index. The identification of the optimal location of FACTS devices like TCSC and TCPAR are obtained using an enhanced genetic algorithm. The effectiveness of FACTS devises for overloaded line minimization is verified using IEEE 30 bus system.
