In order to be able to successfully apply interline power flow controllers (IPFCs) for power-system transient-stability improvement and for the damping of oscillations, proper control strategies should be applied to these devices. The basis for the implementation of such a strategy that is proposed in this paper is to know the energy function of a power system that includes IPFCs. Already-known energy functions that proved to be suitable for an electric-power system do not include such a device. Therefore, in this paper an energy function that considers the IPFC's action in the form of a supplement to the already-known structure-preserving energy functions was constructed. Furthermore, the strategy for implementing the newly developed IPFC energy functions in order to ensure a globally optimum control strategy in the Lyapunov sense is presented. The results of the numerical examples show that the magnitudes of the IPFC's series-injected voltages remain set to their maximum values and that only the angles of these voltages change, similar to the ldquobang-bangrdquo control strategies proposed for some other FACTS devices.
