Abstract: Interarea oscillations are turned to be a severe problem in large interconnected power systems, hence they cause severe problems like damage to generators, reduce the power transfer capability of transmission lines, increase line losses, increase wear and tear on the network components etc. This paper introduces a new control technique that uses unified power flow controllers (UPFC) with superconducting magnetic energy storage system (SMES) in order to damp the interarea oscillation in an effective manner.
Keywords: Unified Power Flow Controllers (UPFC), Super Conducting Magnetic Energy Storage Systems (SMES), Inter Area Oscillations.
