This paper deals with optimal power flow control in electric power systems by the use of a unified power flow controller (UPFC). Models suitable for incorporation in power flow programs are developed and analysed. The application of UPFC for optimal power flow control is demonstrated through numerical examples. It is shown that a UPFC has the capability of regulating the power flow and minimising the power losses simultaneously. An algorithm is proposed for determining the optimum size of UPFC for power flow applications. The performance of UPFC is compared with that of a phase shifting transformer (PST)
