In this paper, we develop an optimization method to determine the optimal series compensation ratio for a distribution network. The objective function consists of minimizing the voltage variation under several stability constraints. An initial power flow solution is used to evaluate the problem constraints formulated via algebraic equations and inequalities. The validation and effectiveness of the optimization method have been demonstrated by means of simulation analysis using PSB Power System Blockset Program in conjunction with Simulink.
