    In a liberalized electricity market, the use of phase shift ing transformers or other power ¿ow controlling devices allows the transmission system operator to utilize the avail able grid infrastructure in a more optimal way. However, each phase shifter adds a degrees of freedom to the control problem, making optimization more dif¿cult. In this paper, the coordination problem is solved by using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). The goal is to give an overview of how PSO is used to solve this particular problem, and to demon strate a new area of application for the method.
