Recent technologies have been focusing on power generation through renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, hydro etc. This paper focuses on development of a micro solar/hydro power generating resources feeding local loads. The compensation system derived for the small scale loading conditions at the load line was made using PI scaling Genetic Algorithm based control keeping the general architecture of the UPFC same. The results had depicted enhancement in the active power output, better reactive power compensation and reduction in THD levels of voltage and current at the load line.
