Abstract:

The power system is a exceptionally nonlinear system that works in an always showing signs of change condition, loads, generator yields, topology and key working parameters changes consistently. The stability of the system depends on the nature of the disturbance as well as the initial operating condition. The power congestion known as the limitations to how much power can be transferred across a transmission interfaces and further that there is an incentive to actually desire to transfer more power. The old approach was to correct congestion lies in reinforcing the system with additional transmission capacity. Although easy to perform, this approach is complex, time consuming and costly. It is ending up noticeably progressively hard to get the licenses to building new transmission passages, or even grow existing ones. This issue can be solved by introducing Facts devices in the transmission system. Facts Devices play an imperative part in controlling the reactive and active power flow to the power network and thus both the system voltage variances and transient stability. Among Facts device Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is the most versatile and complex power electronic equipment which can increase reliability and can serve as an alternative to new investments in overhead lines, which are difficult due to a lack of public support. The proposed work is based on control of reactive power in power system utilizing modified Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC). The impact of customary UPFC and modified UPFC on the power flow of transmission lines were analyzed.
