The Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is a power electronic controller which can be used to control active and reactive power flows in a transmission line by injection of (variable) voltage in series and reactive current in shunt. In this paper we evaluate the performance of a control strategy for UPFC in which we control real power flow through the line, while regulating magnitudes of the voltages at its two ports using transient simulation. The real power reference is modulated in order to improve the damping of power swings in the line. The effectiveness of the UPFC with this control strategy is clearly brought out by the simulation study.
