Understanding Facts Concepts and Technology of Flexible AC Transmission Systems
Preface to Understanding Facts of AC Transmission Systems
Each authors of this guide, Hingorani and Gyugyi, have been deeply concerned in pioneering work on this new know-how of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACfS).
Hingorani pioneered the idea and managed a big R&D effort from EPRI, and Gyugyi invented and pioneered a number of key FACfS Controllers whereas main a improvement workforce at Westinghouse.
In truth, each have been concerned in pioneering advances in lots of different purposes of energy electronics.
FACTS is one side of the ability electronics revolution that’s going down in all areas of electrical power.
A spread of highly effective semiconductor gadgets not solely provide the benefit of excessive pace and reliability of switching however, extra importantly,
the chance provided by a range of revolutionary circuit ideas primarily based on these energy gadgets improve the worth of electrical power.
This introduction is partly dedicated to briefly conveying this angle earlier than discussing varied specifics of Flexible AC Transmission, the subject material of this guide.
In any case, applied sciences from the transistor to microelectronics have revolutionized many facets of our lives; there is no such thing as a cause why energy gadgets should not have a big affect on our lives as effectively,
no less than the place power is worried. The ability electronics revolution is going on, and purposes of energy electronics will proceed to develop.
Within the technology space, the potential software of energy electronics is basically in renewable technology. Photograph voltaic technology and gas cells require conversion of de to ac.
Technology with variable pace is critical for the financial viability of wind and small hydrogenerators. Variable-speed wind turbines and small hydrogenerators require conversion of variable frequency ae to energy system frequency.
These purposes of energy electronics within the renewable technology space usually require converter sizes within the vary of just a few kilowatts to a couple megawatts.
Persevering with breakthroughs will decide if these applied sciences will make a big affect on electrical energy technology.
In any case, they serve the important wants of small, remoted hundreds the place taking utility wires can be dearer.
In thermal energy vegetation, appreciable power could possibly be saved with the use of variable pace drives for pumps and compressors.
Within the coming many years, electrical power storage is predicted to be extensively utilized in energy techniques as capacitor, battery, and superconducting magnet applied sciences transfer ahead.
Batteries are extensively used already for emergency energy provides. These require ac/dc/ac converters within the vary of just a few kilowatts to a couple tens of megawatts.
Alternatively, variable pace hydrostorage requires converters of up to a couple hundred megawatts.
