The power flow control, improved stability, management of the voltage profile and minimized losses, are the goal of every power company, and can be achieved by applying FACTS in the electric power system.

In this article, one of the blog contributors, Mile, will look into a simple approach, which is based on sensitivity coefficients and dynamic P-V curves, in order to define the optimal location of SVC FACTS device. The used method actually consists of identifying the weakest buses in the system through the P–V curves. Enjoy!

The coordination of protections is a study of the interfaces between the protection scheme and the system overcurrent, considering an operation sequence between the different existing protection devices, in order to guarantee the selectivity of the system.

Also, coordination of protections is commonly used in medium voltage distribution networks and low voltage systems due to the nature of the network itself. Read Electrical Engineer Nico’s writing about the topic below…

One of our readers, Nico sent us an article about a very interesting and essential topic; Power system stability. Happy reading and don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments :)

Hello fellows,

Stay in constant synchronization of multiple elements in a Power System has become an extremely important task in the operation of Power Systems; this result is due to the expansion of the electric power systems that increased the interconnection of generating stations and the various load centers.

system stability curve

One of the most important features of an electrical power system is stability. An electrical power system must be stable within the predefined limits against different types of disturbances.

That is the topic that Yasser (one of the members) chose to deal with. If you want to be published in the blog too, send us a mail
