This paper investigates the concept of convertible static transmission controller (CSTC) using modular transformer converter (MTC) as the building block. The MTC is a bidirectional back-to-back ac/ac power conversion unit and the CSTC is a versatile transmission controller asset for dynamic power flow control and contingency management of the transmission grid. The proposed CSTC with new functions has several advantages compared to existing flexible ac transmission system controllers. System… CONTINUE READING
