Abstract

The focus of this thesis is a FACTS device known as the Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC). With its unique
capability to control simultaneously real and reactive power flows on a transmission line as well as to regulate voltage at the
bus where it is connected, this device creates a tremendous quality impact on power system stability. These features become
even more significant knowing that the UPFC can allow loading of the transmission lines close to their thermal limits, forcing
the power to flow through the desired paths. This will give the power system operators much needed flexibility in order to
satisfy the demands that the deregulated power system will impose.The most cost-effective way to estimate the effect the UPFC
has on a specific power System operation is to simulate that system together with the UPFC by using one of the existing
simulations packages. Specifically, the objective of this thesis is to (1) develop a UPFC model that can be incorporated into
existing MATLAB based Power System analysis Toolbox (PSAT), (2) design basic UPFC controllers to enhance power system
stability. The proposed tools will be tested on the two-area-four-generator system to prove their effectiveness.
