Abstract: The power interconnection is getting increasingly congested so to control power flow of transmission grid, to limit loop flows, and also the capacity of transmission line can be increased by use of flexible ac transmission systems (FACT) devices. But high cost and reliability concerns have limited the FACT solutions. This paper introduces the concept of Distributed SERIES FACTS (D-FACTS) as an alternative approach to realizing cost-effective power flow control by way of distributed series impedance (DSI) and a distributed static series compensator (DSSC). D-FACTS can be clipped on power line and it can dynamically and statically change the impedance of the line so as to control and increase capacity of power flow. D-FACTS provides higher performance and lower cost method for enhancing T&D system reliability and controllability, improving asset utilization and end-user power quality, while minimizing system cost and environmental impact.
