Modeling of Hybrid Power Flow Controller
The utilization of power electronic converters will enhance the power flow in existing infra]structure assets of power transmission and distribution utilities. A recently proposed hybrid power flow controller offers the integration of existing reactive power elements with new converters. Before such devices are accepted by utilities, it is essential to demonstrate their functionality in well proven power system simulation tools such as PSS. This proposal covers the development of suitable PSS based models of these power flow controllers so that planners and utilities can assess their capabilities. The partner company will get working models of their invention which can be used to promote and enhance their development and integration in potential applications. The models will be used in industry standard power system simulation tools and can be verified against benchmark systems.
