Abstract

The unified power flow controller (UPFC) is a FACTS device, which is used to control the power flow on a transmission line. The dynamic and transient behavior of a power system can be improved by controlling the voltage magnitude and phase angle of the converter voltages in the UPFC. Self-tuning adaptive control of the voltage magnitude of the series converter for power system stability is presented in this article. The control is derived through a pole-shifting technique employing the predicted plant model. The controller has been tested for ranges of operating conditions and for various disturbances. From a number of simulation studies on a simple power system it was observed that the adaptive algorithm converges very quickly and also provides robust damping profiles.
