It consequently becomes imperative in the current transmission networks to make full use of existing resources and to rapidly transition to renewable energy alternatives. Electrical energy end users also benefit from effective resource utilisation since it lowers the price they pay for electricity. In this work, we offer a multi-objective optimum power flow (OPF) for an integrated gearbox network where FACTS devices are present. The paper's originality lies in the use of a multi-objective function. Minimising voltage variation, power loss, and negative social welfare (NSW) are all part of the objective function. The abatement of loss and NSW guarantees the lowering of per-unit pricing of power at the consumer end resulting in improved customer satisfaction. The problem was fixed using a FACTS Static var compensator. The theory was tested using an IEEE 30 bus network. The objective function has been optimised using the Mouth Flame Optimisation Algorithm. Detailed presentations, comparisons, and analyses of the collected findings have been made.
