In this paper an economic comparison between using FACTS devices and demand response programs implementation for the enhancement of available transmission capacity is addressed. In order to reach to this target first, direct load control program, as the most common demand response program, is considered. Then, enhancement of ATC by using of TCSC, shunt capacitor and shunt reactor is investigated. Finally, an economic analysis for the above ATC enhancement resources is performed and an economic feasibility study is conducted. The proposed method is evaluated by numerical studies based on IEEE 30-bus test system.
