Abstract

One of the main concerns for any grid is power quality and efficiency and reactive and active power reliability for the consumer. To manage active and reactive power flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) technologies are used to improve power quality and efficiency. Since FACTS technologies were developed, much research has been done to acquire more accurate and reliable techniques and algorithms to implement FACTS in power systems. Current microgrid schemes implemented with FACTS, an output response monitored with different key performance ...
