STATCOM: Theoretical Aspects & Experimental Study
Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) is the name given to the application of power electronics devices to control the power flow & other quantities in the power system. In general, there are four types of the FACTS controllers i.e. series, shunt, combined series-shunt & combined series-series controllers. They are also categorized on the basis of converter technology like voltage source converter & current source converter. The experimental model described in this paper is dependent on voltage source converter based FACTS controller.
