Abstract

This paper investigates the feasibility of application of a unified power flow controller (UPFC) to damp subsynchronous resonance in a power system. The basic dynamic characteristics of the UPFC and its parameters impact on SSR modes are investigated, and based on the introduced control strategy, its ability of damping SSR for sample study systems is demonstrated.
