Controlling voltage and active or reactive losses are one of the most important issues in each power grid. In this paper, the influence of wind farm and thyristors switched capacitors on the network are considered. TSSC and Wind turbines are one of the significant components of each network. These instruments are also one of the resources of producing active and reactive power. In this study, wind farm and TSSC are already located optimally by Genetic algorithm. This network studied when a fault considered in one of buses. So that, in first step none of wind farm and TSSC are in the power grid. In the second step, both wind farm and TSSC are connected while a short circuit accrues in one of the busses or lines of the network.  At the end, it will be observed that using thyristor switched capacitors and wind farm influence the network. So that, the capacity of producing the reactive and active power will be increased and totally the loss of the system will be decreased. Furthermore, the voltage profile will be in a suitable range.
