Application of Flexible AC Transmission System (Facts) In Recent Power System

Authors(5) :-Nimish Suchak, Vinod Kumar Chavada, Bhaveshkumar Shah, Sandip Parmar, Vishal Harsoda

With development in power systems there is a need for controlling the power flow along the transmission line. This document describes the concept, types and components in a Flexible AC Transmission System(FACTS). FACT is economic and plays a vital role in the power transmission. This was designed to overcome the mechanically controlled AC power transmission systems. This uses thyristor switching devices. A frequently occurring situation is transmission of more power in a line than what it was originally designed for. FACTS can be used there. FACTS reduces the losses and the structural limitation of power system.
