PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Flexible alternating current transmission system or FACTS is a system which is used for quality AC transmission of electrical energy. It is composed of static equipment and helps in boosting controllability and increases the power-transfer capability of the network.   Electricity market's activities and a growing demand for electricity have led to heavily stressed power systems. This requires  operation of the networks to be closer to their stability limits.

This concept gives a comprehensive review and evaluation of the FACTS controllers. During the functionality of this project, the operational amplifier duly generates lead time between the zero-voltage pulse and the zero-current pulse, and then it is fed to two interrupt pins of the microcontroller wherein the program takes over to bring the shunt reactors to the circuit in order to get the voltage duly compensated. Back-to-back SCRs duly interfaced through optical isolation from the programmed microcontroller are used in series for switching the reactor – in this case, a choke is used. The microcontroller used in this project belongs to the 8051 family.

In future, this project can be developed by using a firing-angle control methodology for smooth control of the voltage. This will be better than switching the reactors in step-by-step mode wherein the voltage controlled in steps is not very precise.

Q & A
Q:  Can we see the high voltage?
A:  Voltage increase may not be possible to be seen as the very place where the project is getting powered might be already having some other inductive load in that area to which the capacitive load of the project was to compensate the lagging pf. However one has to watch the voltage at the capacitor point only.
Q:  What is FACTS?
A:  FACTS or flexible AC transmission system involves use of power electronic devices to ensure smooth transmission of AC power by compensating the reactive power.
Q:  What is TSR?
A:  TSR stands for Thyristor Switched Reactor, switching appropriate number of Inductors in capacitive lines to improve power factor
Q:  Can inductance be increased?
A:  Yes, by increasing the wattage of bulb from 100 W to 200 W because the inductor is used in series with it.
