One of the major leaps in power systems is the increased use of renewable sources in the production of electricity. These integrated energy systems are increasingly replacing the conventional power plants in various sections around the globe. In this paper, an optimal utilization of the integrated solar, wind and conventional power energy systems has been proposed in the presence of an Interline power flow controller (IPFC). A suitable location has been chosen for the placement of the renewable sources and IPFC based on suitable indexes. The IPFC has been further tuned for reduction of power loss in electrical network and reduction of voltage deviation. The proposed methodology is executed on a modified IEEE 30 bus system.
