Abstract? As a consequence of the electric utility industry deregulation and liberalization of electricity markets as well as increasing demand of electric power, the amount of power exchanges between producer and consumer are increases. In this process, the existing transmission lines are overloaded and lead to unreliable system. The countries like India with increasing demand of electric power day by day it is difficult to expand the existing transmission system due to difficulties in right of way and cost problem in transmission network expansion. So, we need power flow controllers to increasing transmission capacity and controlling power flows. Flexible alternating current transmission system (FACTS) controllers are capable of controlling power flows and enhancing the usable capacity of existing transmission lines. In this paper we have done the comprehensive modeling of FACTS devices for power flow study and its impact on system voltage. The effectiveness of modeling has been tested and analyzed on IEEE-5 bus system.
