This overview of the FACTS program sponsored by EPRI identifies the significant challenges and the adopted technology-based solutions that have been developed. FACTS technology has been successfully demonstrated and continues to be implemented at transmission locations in the United States. A STATCOM, UPFC, and convertible static compensator are discussed. The installed FACTS controllers have provided new possibilities and unprecedented flexibility aiming at maximizing the utilization of transmission assets efficiently and reliably. As the development and implementation of FACTS controllers evolve, there will be a need for an overall controller "hierarchical" logic to optimize transmission system operations
