This paper presents FACTS controllers that can be used for effective congestion management under the consideration of liberalized European Electricity markets. The main steps of a complete congestion management process are presented including preventive, correcting and reacting congestion management systems and series FACTS controllers are applied to real network conditions in the South East European region. By taking advantage of these devices it is shown that congestion management can be a major area for the application of power flow controllers while at the same time system security can be better maintained.
