Maximization of Wind Energy Utilization through Facts Devices

Author : Jaya J 1 Dr. M. Mary Linda 2

Date of Publication :30th June 2022

Abstract: This paper proposes a method for maximizing capacity of wind generation by best location of FACTs devices. Initially capacities of the connected wind units are determined by industry. A probabilistic approach is applied for the day – ahead planning. It is used to find the maximum deployable wind sources. So that the prescribed wind spillage is not exceeded. This is done using the optimum power flow. Further it can be improved by installing FACTS devices. FACTS devices are used to enhance AC system controllability, stability and increase power transfer capability. Two ranking list are developed for SVC and TCSC and then they are combined into a unified method.
