Modeling and Control of a UPFC System Using Pole-Placement and Hinf Robust Control Techniques
FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) technology has now been accepted as a potential solution to the stability problem and load flow. The Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is considered to be the most powerful and versatile among all FACTS devices. This paper presents the modeling and control of a UPFC system using pole-placement and H robust control techniques. A simulation study using Matlab/Simulink is presented to compare the performance of these control strategies and their robustness with respect to variations is the system parameters such as the inductance of the transmission line.
