A modified particle swarm optimization is proposed and used for coordinated designing of the power system stabilizer and unified power flow controller as a damping controller in the multi-machine power system. For evaluation of the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed controllers, their performances have been tested on a weakly connected power system subjected to different disturbances. The results of these studies show that the proposed coordinated controllers have an excellent capability in damping power system inter-area oscillations and enhance greatly the dynamic stability of the power system.
