This project focuses on the application of Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System (FACTS) for improving power transmission capabilities of power system. The purpose of the project is to study and define the basic power flow problem of a network and improve the network capabilities using FACTS controller. The project is divided into two stages. The first stage is the identification phase focusing on the study of basic power flow problems using power flow analysis, identifications on the types of FACTS controllers and familiarizing on MATLAB and Power System Analysis Toolbox (PSAT) software. The FACTS controllers chosen are Static VAR Compensator (SVC) and Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC). The second stage is the implementation phase focused on applying FACTS controller on different power system network FACTS controller is incorporated to the power system network to control the power flow and ensure stability of the system. The methodology of the project consist of model a base case power system, run power flow analysis of the power system network without and with FACTS controller and obtain result, and compare the results to observe any improvements. The power system network used to demonstrate the controllability of FACTS are 3 bus network, 5 bus network, and IEEE 14 bus network system operating with common loads and generators- An analysis on the effect of SVC and UPFC on the power system is also presented in this project to compare the power improved.
