Growth in load demand may lead to changes in generation sources and sizes along with all the uncertainty of transactions will further strain existing power systems, and may lead to the transmission systems to work closer to their operating limits or even beyond its transfer capacity and cause congestion. Applications of newly emerging technologies are able to provide solutions for electricity markets to maintain the stability and reliability of power systems while handling large volumes of transactions. FACTS allows flexible operation of AC transmission systems whereby the changes can be accommodated very easily without stressing the system. In this paper the proposed methods are illustrated with a IEEE 30-bus system to improve the congestion management and to reduce the operating cost of the system using STATCOM controller. The optimal location as well as optimal rating of the device is found out for optimal system using Power World Simulator Software 12.0.
