Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is recognized as the most powerful flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) device for power system. This paper presents a review of the most powerful FACTS device UPFC (Unified The potential benefits of FACTS equipment are now widely recognized by the. BENEFITS OF FACTSRegulation of power flows in prescribedtransmission routes .Reduces the need for construction of newtransmission lines.

A new approach to power transmission control” PDF. If there are any disturbances or faults in the source side, the UPFC will not work. Views Read Edit View history. This article about electric power is a stub.

You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. This page was last edited on 29 Novemberat The UPFC uses solid asvantages devices, which provide functional flexibility, generally not attainable by conventional thyristor controlled systems.


This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. The main advantage of the UPFC is to control the active and reactive power flows in the transmission line. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page.

Unified power flow controller – Wikipedia

The controller can control active and reactive power flows in a transmission line. A unified power flow controller electrical device for providing fast-acting reactive power compensation on high-voltage electricity transmission networks.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It uses a pair of three-phase controllable bridges to produce current that is injected into a transmission line using a series transformer.

Archived from the original PDF on Electric power stubs Electricity. Languages Deutsch Edit links. Unified Power Flow Controller UPFCas a representative of the third generation of FACTS devices, is by far the most comprehensive FACTS device, in power system steady-state it can implement power flow regulation, reasonably controlling line active power and reactive power, improving the transmission capacity of power system, and in power system transient state it can realize fast-acting reactive power compensation, dynamically supporting the voltage at the access point and improving system voltage stability, moreover, it can improve the damping of the system and power angle stability.


Please help improve this article by introducing citations to additional sources. The controllable parameters of the UPFC are reactance in the line, phase angle and voltage.
