The role of the FACTS device in power system security enhancement is very important. But type and location of this device must be defining. This paper presents a novel algorithm for allocation of multi-type FACTS devices based on Genetic Algorithm (GA) using a multi-objective optimization function. Proposed algorithm is tested on IEEE 5&6test system and WSCC 9-bus power system and enhancement security index to more of the double and decrease the loss of system about 25%. With shown the comparison of this paper results and result in a recent paper, indicate the ability of proposed method to enhancement of power system security.
