The Interline Power Flow Controller (IPFC) is a voltage-source-converter (VSC)-based flexible ac transmission system (FACTS) controller for series compensation in a multiline transmission system of a substation. The capability of injecting series voltages with controllable magnitude and phase angle makes it a powerful tool for better utilization of existing transmission lines in a multiline transmission system. IPFC is used to regulate active and reactive power flow in a multiline system, usually. In this paper, a control method for IPFC is proposed to control magnitude and phase angle of one sending bus of a substation. All degrees of freedom of IPFC and decoupled synchronous frame concept are used in the proposed control structure. Simulation results in Matlab/Simulink are presented to show the capability of IPFC in compensating the bus voltage.
