The Interline Power Flow Controller (IPFC) is one of the latest generation Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) controller used to control power flows of multiple transmission lines. The aim of this paper is investigation of the effect of location of IPFC on profile of voltage and real and reactive power flow in transmission lines in power system. This model is incorporated in Newton- Raphson (NR) power flow algorithm to study the power flow control in transmission lines in which IPFC is placed. A program in MATLAB/SIMULINK has been written in order to extend conventional NR algorithm based on this model. Numerical results are carried out on a standard power system. The results without and with IPFC for various locations are compared in terms of voltages, active and reactive power flows to demonstrate the performance of the IPFC model.
