A Classification Scheme for FACTS Controllers

  title={A Classification Scheme for FACTS Controllers},
  author={Mohammad Bagher Tavakoli},
There currently exists no formal classification scheme for flexible alternating-current transmission systems (FACTS) controllers, and the paper aims to remedy this. The proposed classification is based on five characteristics of the controllers: connection, commutation, switching frequency, energy storage and presence of a dc port. There are 180 combinations. Six examples are examined, and all the main existing FACTS controllers are tabulated and classified.
