Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) devices have been used for several targets in power system, one of the main contributions of the devices is improving operation conditions. In this paper, two types of these devices have been placed to raise voltage profile, minimizing system loss and arising loadability. The suggested FACTS devices are: Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) and Static Var Compensator (SVC). This problem has been solved by a novel intelligent algorithms. Simulation has been performed on MATLAB software environment. Capability of the proposed model has been confirmed by testing on 30-bus IEEE test system.
