This paper describes an approach powers flow control for an electrical network connected with a wind farm. In this work the powers flow control are performed through a Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC) which is one of among Flexible AC Transmission System devices (FACTS). The wind farm is based on doubly-fed induction generators (DFIG). The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed approach making better the damping of power oscillations caused
by the wind farm, ensuring the minimizing system transmission losses while providing a best voltage level. The simulations are done in MATLAB/ Simulink/ SimPowerSystems environment.
