The loss minimization is a major role in Power System (PS) research. Transmission line losses in a PS can be reduced by Var compensation. After the establishment of power markets with transmission open access, the significance and use of Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) devices for manipulating line power flows to relieve congestion and maximize the overall grid operation have been increased. This paper presents a method to provide simultaneous or individual controls of basic system parameters like transmission voltage, impedance and phase angle, which are controlling by using Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC). The Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) method is used to compute the power flow in optimum value. The performance of this technique is tested using IEEE - 14 bus system through the MatLab/Simulink simulation software package. The simulation results of test power system show that the location of the UPFC has been able to enhance the voltage level of the test power system and also minimize the transmission line losses.
