Quantifying Losses in Power Systems Using Different Types of FACTS Controllers

  title={Quantifying Losses in Power Systems Using Different Types of FACTS Controllers},
  author={Gopiram Maddela},
This thesis discusses the placement of conventional power flow controllers (namely the Fixed series capacitor (FSC), Phase Angle Regulating Transformer (PAR)) and Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices (namely the Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC), the Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC), the Unified Power Flow Controllers (UPFC) and the Sen Transformer (ST)) in bulk power systems to minimize transmission losses in the entire system. This firstly resolves line… Expand
