The quick growth in Electric power demand led to a burden on the electrical network resulting in different types of problems in the network. Therefore, the enhancement of power system stability is the ultimate requirement. For improving stability, different types of FACTS devices have been used. Various studies have been done on power systems design, modeling, operation, control, and application of FACTS devices. Detailed studies of several FACTS devices are strongly needed. It is because a Flexible AC transmission system device's operation affects the multiple conditions in a power system. Furthermore, there is a need to assess how well these devices operate in a more intricate system. The modeling and use of GCSC and TSSC controllers in a multi-machine context are discussed in the paper. Numerous fault situations scenarios are considered to evaluate the controller's performance. PSS, or Power System Stabilizers, are probably present in large systems and are expected to work better when they operate simultaneously with the GCSC and TSSC. Results for the system if a compensating device is not present, with PSS alone, and with PSS augmented by a PI, FUZZY, and ANN controller Achieved are the GCSC and TSSC. The comparison demonstrates that the PSS-assisted with PI, Fuzzy, and ANN controller with TSSC FACTS reduces power system oscillations more quickly than in the past, improving the overall performance of the controller and effectively stabilizing the provided system.
