Improving grid fault tolerance by optimal control of FACTS devices

  title={Improving grid fault tolerance by optimal control of FACTS devices},
  author={Bill Siever and Ann Miller and Daniel R. Tauritz},
One of the most promising applications of the family of power electronic devices called Flexible AC Transmission System devices is to better regulate power flow in transmission grids. In particular, the Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is the best choice for complete power flow cont rol. By selecting proper installation locations and control techniques, UPFCs may be able to prevent the “domin o effect,” where a single fault leads to a widespread blackout. Due to installation costs, it is… CONTINUE READING
