Publication Date


This paper addresses the comparative load flow analysis with and without Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) for six buses, three phase transmission line under unsymmetrical faults (L-G, L-L and L-L-G) in simulation model. Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is a typical Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) device playing a vital role as a stability aid for large transient disturbances in an interconnected power system. The main objective of this paper is to improve transient stability of the six bus system. Here active and reactive power on load bus of the system considered has been determined under different fault conditions. UPFC has been connected to the system and its effects on power flow and voltage profile of test system has been determined with various line data and bus data for six buses, three lines power system and simulation model by using simulation toolbox has been developed. In this work a versatile model is presented for UPFC inherent order to improve the transient stability and damp oscillation. Index Terms – Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC), Control, simulation, transients, line to ground fault (L-G), double line to ground fault (L-L-G), double line fault (L-L)
