Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is recognized as the most powerful flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) device for power system. This paper presents a review of the most powerful FACTS device UPFC (Unified The potential benefits of FACTS equipment are now widely recognized by the. BENEFITS OF FACTSRegulation of power flows in prescribedtransmission routes .Reduces the need for construction of newtransmission lines.

Please help improve this article by introducing citations to additional sources. The main advantage of the UPFC is to control the active and reactive power flows in the transmission line. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. The controllable parameters of the UPFC are reactance in the line, phase angle and voltage.

Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. This page was last edited on 29 Novemberat A unified power flow controller electrical device for providing fast-acting reactive power compensation on high-voltage electricity transmission networks. The UPFC uses solid state devices, which provide functional flexibility, generally not attainable by conventional thyristor controlled systems.

Unified Power Flow Controller UPFCas a representative of the third generation of FACTS devices, is by far the most comprehensive FACTS device, in power system steady-state it can implement power flow regulation, advantwges controlling line active power and reactive power, improving the transmission capacity of power system, and in power pufc transient state it can realize fast-acting reactive power compensation, dynamically supporting the voltage at the access point and advantagex system voltage stability, moreover, it can improve the damping of the system and power angle stability.

If there are any disturbances or faults in the source side, the UPFC will not work. The UPFC operates only under balanced sine wave source.
