Power grid flow control studies and high speed simulation
"Flexible AC transmission System (FACTS) devices, which use high-speed, high-power semiconductor technology to better control power grids, are expected to be vital components to regulate an increasingly overburdened and under regulated transmission system. The work presented here demonstrates that the most general of these devices, the Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC), may be able to reduce the kinds of power flows that lead to cascading failures. A comprehensive plan to use the UPFC as a theoretical super set of FACTS devices is proposed, which can be used to significantly harden power grids against both intentional and natural failures. Finally, a set of techniques for high speed simulation is developed which can be used in conjunction with the proposed hardening plan to allow it to be scaled to actual systems"--Abstract, leaf iv.
