    The arrival of FACTS technology has coincided with major restructuring of the electricity supply industry in the UK, and elsewhere. Deregulation of generation has increased requirements on the transmission system, shortened lead times and increased uncertainties for transmission planners. This paper describes how the UK NGC has successfully applied power electronics to meet these challenges, using... View full abstract»

    A STATCOM-based SVC rated at 0 to 225 MVAr will be installed on NGC's 400 kV grid system to enable the network to carry increased power flows from the North to the South of England. This SVC will be easily relocatable to other substations if this is required by the changing needs of the grid system. It will meet the performance criteria which were specified by NGC and the incorporation of a STATCO... View full abstract»

    The unified power flow controller (UPFC) is the first member of an emerging family of advanced flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) controllers that use multiple synchronous voltage sources (SVS) operated conjunctively to optimize the use of electric power transmission networks. This paper gives an overview of the practical aspects of UPFC design and operation, and illustrates the implementatio... View full abstract»

  • Power electronics applied to the distribution system

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):3/1 - 3/7
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    The concept of flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS), as the name implies, was originally developed for transmission networks but similar ideas are now starting to be applied in distribution systems. However, when considering the use of high power electronics on the distribution network it is important to recognise another strand of technology development which comes from uninterruptible power ...

    The author describes how there are two distinctly different approaches to the realization of power electronics-based FACTS controllers (VAr compensators), both resulting in a comprehensive group of controllers able to address targeted transmission problems. The first group employs reactive impedances or a tap-changing transformer with thyristor switches as controlled-elements; the second group use... View full abstract»

    Many electric utilities find themselves able to satisfy their slowly varying VAr demand (caused by the daily load cycle) and to maintain a good long-term control of power system voltage, by switching in and out banks of capacitors and reactors. Some utilities have made widespread use of SVCs to support their transmission systems, because they provide good local voltage control and rapid VAr suppor... View full abstract»
