Interline Power Flow Controller (IPFC) Characterization in Power Systems
AbstractFlexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) have been proposed in the late 1980s for providing the necessary electrical power system requirements. FACTS are used for controlling the power flow and improving the stability of the power system. Interline Power Flow Controller (IPFC) is a versatile device in FACTS family; it is one of recently developed controllers in FACTS family, which has the capability to simultaneously control the power flow in two or multiple transmission lines. This paper is tackling the IPFC performance in power systems; it aims to discuss the availability to define a known scenario for the IPFC performance in different systems. The introduction is supported with a brief review on IPFC, IPFC principles for operation, and IPFC mathematical model. IEEE 14-bus and 30-bus systems have been chosen as a test power system; for supporting the behavior study of power system, which is equipped with IPFC device. Three different locations have been chosen to give variety of system configurations to give effective performance analysis.
