Distributed Power Flow Controller For Power Quality Enhancement

This paper presents the overview of Distributed Power Flow Controller which is a recent inclusion in D-FACTS family. The deregulated power environment demands low cost, high impact power quality devices. The DPFC emerges from the UPFC and inherits the control capability of the UPFC, which is the simultaneous adjustment of the line impedance, the transmission angle, and the bus- voltage magnitude. DPFC controllers have more reliability and cost saving approach over UPFC controller. The reliability of the DPFC is greatly increased because of the redundancy of the series converters.
