Unified Power Flow Controller Technology and Application provides comprehensive coverage on UPFC technology, providing a range of topics, including design principle, control and protection, and insulation coordination. It summarizes all the most up-to-date research and practical achievements that are related to UPFC and MMC technology, including test techniques for main components, closed-loop test techniques for control and protection systems, and onsite techniques for implementing UPFC projects. The book is an essential reference book for both academics and engineers working in power system protection control, power system planning engineers, and HVDC FACTS related areas.

Readers will not only obtain the detailed information regarding theoretical analysis and practical application of UPFC, but also the control mechanism of advanced MMC technology, both of which are not common topics in previously published books.

Key Features

  • Shows how to use modular multilevel converters (MMC) to implement UPFC that lead to cost-effective and reliable systems
  • Draws from the most up-to-date research and practical applications
  • Teaches electromechanical/electromagnetic transient simulation techniques and real-time closed-loop simulation test techniques of the MMC based UPFC


Power Engineers, power system engineers, and academics and researchers working in power system protection & control, power system planning, HVDC&FACTS related areas
