Title

Controlling Power Using FACTs Devices and the Maximum Flow Algorithm

Abstract

The bulk power system is the largest man-made network, and its sheer size makes controlling it an extremely difficult task. In this paper, a method to control the network using FACTS devices set to levels determined by a maximum flow (max-flow) algorithm from graph theory is described. The maximum flow algorithm is introduced and shown how it applies to the power system for FACTS decide placement and scheduling. Finally, the appropriateness of the maximum flow algorithm for power flow control is discussed.
