In this paper, AC optimal power flow combined with UPFC has been used to manage the congestion of transmission lines in a restructured power system with pool market model. The modeling of unified power flow controller (UPFC) has been adopted based on bipolar model and power injection method. To determine an appropriate location for UPFC as well as to set its parameters, an approach based on genetic algorithm has been suggested. The modified IEEE 14-bus system is used to determine the effectiveness and applicability of the proposed method and results are discussed.
