Reactive power is associated with voltage parameter. This parameter is a major concern in power systems due to unbalance between power generation and power demand. Due to accumulate in electricity demand, power loss and various factors; modern power system networks are being operated under highly stressed conditions. To meet reactive power requirement and maintaining the bus voltage within acceptable limits, the contribution of Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) controllers (Static Synchronous COMpensator (STATCOM) are vital. In this research work, the feeble buses under single generator contingency were recognized to uphold the reactive power compensators by executing new index approaches. The location and rating of STATCOM are the significant parameters, affecting network loss reduction and improving network performance. In this article, an investigation is accomplished to fix appropriate location and rating STATCOM to optimize the multi objective function as stated by bio inspired Gaussian mutation based Constriction Factor Particle Swarm Optimization (GM-CFPSO). Matlab/Simulink associated simulations confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed approach on IEEE 14 bus systems. The findings of the simulation revealed that, the optimum placing and sizing of STATCOM improved greatly the voltage stability margin and curtailment in power loss of the network.
