A study on Angle Stability Solution Using coordinated Facts Devices

Dr. K.T. Chaturvedi, Kripashankar Pandeya


This paper presents a Angle Stability Solution Using coordinated  Facts Devices located in different areas of a power system. Analysis of initial conditions and a contingency analysis to determine the voltage stability margin and voltage variations at different  critical nodes are held. The response is carried out by the coordination of multiple-type FACTS devices due to which the reactive power is compensated, improving the voltage stability margin at the critical nodes.
