International Journal of Power System Operation and Energy Management


This paper focuses on three key issues of the power system that is stability enhancement, minimization of real power losses, and improving voltage profile of the buses by placing the Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) to the best location in WSCC 3 machine 9 bus system. The comparison between with and without UPFC is carried out to prove that UPFC enhances the stability of the multi machine power system. In this paper the best location of the UPFC is recognized by Power Flow Analysis. Eigen Value Analysis and Continuation Power Flow (CPF) is employed to show the performance of UPFC for stability enhancement. The analysis is carried out using Power System Analysis Toolbox (PSAT) software.
