This paper presents dynamic control and performance of a unified power flow controller (UPFC) intended for installation on a transmission system consisting of two sets of three-phase transmission lines in parallel. When no UPFC is installed, interruption of either three-phase line due to a fault reduces an active power flow to half, because the line impedance becomes double before the interruption. Installing the UPFC makes it possible to control an amount of active power flowing through the transmission system. The validity of the theoretical analysis developed in this paper is verified by experiments using a 10-kVA laboratory setup, as well as a computer simulation.
