The planned offshore wind farms in Germany are basically located in North region. For wind integration in Germany, establishing new transmission lines and employing new technologies have become unavoidable. Establishing new transmission lines is very costly and difficult regarding environmental condition. One of the solutions is the utilization of flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS). This paper discusses a method for determining the placement of series compensation to control line overload in power systems with wind power penetration. By a sensitivity based method critical lines can be identified quickly and accurately, to obtain desired wind feeding into the system. Thyristor controlled series compensator (TCSC) is applied for system stabilization as a typical FACTS devices. This method is applied to realistic scenarios in a test system, which simulates reduced 380 kV network of Germany. Simulation results showed that the proposed method is effective and can enhance the transfer capability margin of existing power systems.
