Increasing demand for electrical power as a result of modern civilization has imposed challenges such as voltage instability, transmission loss, and power factor fluctuations on power systems. In an attempt to overcome these challenges, FACTS devices are employed. This paper presented the application of Static Var Compensator to the Nigerian 330kV Power Network to study its effect on the system’s active transmission loss. SIMULINK/MATLAB was used to model the Nigerian 330kV Power Network and the SVC. The simulation result showed that by applying the Static Var Compensator, the systems total active transmission loss was reduced by 31.79%. From the above percentage reduction and the pattern of the associated chart and graph, it was observed that SVC could be used for active transmission loss minimization in power systems.
