To meet the ever increasing population demand, the power industry has grown rapidly over the years by increasing the number of devices and incorporating highly complex as well as expensive components into the power system. It becomes specifically important to focus on voltage stability analysis of the power system to avoid worst-case scenarios, such as voltage collapse, which may result in huge losses. One of the main causes of voltage collapse is the insufficient availability of reactive power in the system. One solution of overcoming this problem is adding reactive power sources such as FACTS devices into the system. An IEEE 14 Bus system was built using Simulink/ Matlab and PSAT(Power Systems Analysis Toolbox). FACTS device such as Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM), is included into the test system as a test case. Continuation power flow analysis is performed on the system with no FACTS included in it and on the test case with FACTS included in it. The output is displayed in terms of Voltage Profile Tables, P-V curves, and active and reactive power losses . STATCOM proved to be better than SVC in improving the maximum loadability margin and in enhancing the overall steady state voltage stability of the system
