The paper presents an approach for identifying the most effective flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) controllers, locations, types and ratings that increase asset utilization of power systems. The approach is a combined static/dynamic procedure based on the use of a continuation power flow, an optimal power flow and an eigenvalue analysis. The application of this approach on a representative studied transmission system has resulted in an increase of the maximum stable loadability limit by 6.7%. The paper finally shows that the proposed approach is helpful in coordinating the functionality of FACTS controllers to enhance power system dynamics
