Editorial Reviews

Review

"I certainly recommend this book to all power system planning engineers and students who wish to follow careers in this area." (IEEE Canadian Review, Summer 2005)

From the Back Cover

Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) controllers are revolutionising power transmission networks resulting in increased efficiency and stability. Covering the most popular FACTS models and their interaction with the power network, the book highlights the growing importance of this technology.
  • Provides a thorough grounding in the mathematical representation of FACTS controllers and power plant components.
  • Explains power plant component parameters calculations in both phase and sequence frames of reference.
  • Details conventional and three-phase power flows of FACTS-upgraded power systems.
  • Covers optimal power flows and advanced optimization techniques.
  • Includes a methodology on power tracing and application areas.
  • Enables the reader to gain first-hand experience thanks to provided test cases and software written in Matlab® code in most chapters.
Offering a comprehensive understanding of FACTS controllers with the power network, this book is an asset to electrical and electronic engineers involved in the planning, design and operation of power systems. Researchers and postgraduate students in the field will also benefit from this valuable reference.

Format: Hardcover
Although the authors have mastering in FACTS modelling, the half of the book is Matlab Code. It seems that the authors could have saved pages giving a CD with the codes. Before buying, it is a good idea to check other books.

FACTS: Modelling and Simulation in Power Networks
Enrique Acha, Claudio R. Fuerte-Esquivel, Hugo Ambriz-Pérez, César Angeles-Camacho.
John Wiley & Sons, 1 edition, 2004

This book presents a general introduction to the modeling of Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems (FACTS) for use in power system simulations in steady state, spiced with other topics such as Three-phase Power Flow, and Optimal Power Flow (OPF).

FACTS mentioned include Thyristor-controlled Reactor (TCR), Static Var Compensator (SVC), Thyristor-controlled Series Compensator (TCSC), Voltage Source Converter (VSC), Static Compensator (STATCOM), Solid State Series Compensator (SSSC), Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC), and High-Voltage Direct-Current Voltage Source Converters (HVDC-VSC). Their mathematical modeling is given relating currents, voltages, and firing angles of individual components. Then the models are presented in matrix form, relating currents and voltages through corresponding admittance matrices, which permits including the devices in a general power flow formulation to be solved by Newton-Raphson techniques.

Though the book includes the description and modeling of the conventional power flow problem, it does not attempt to be an introductory text, and so many explanations are rather terse. A previous understanding of the power flow problem, by reading other books, should be required.

The greatest controversy regarding this book is in the amount of Matlab code that is provided.
Even if plagued by typos and formatting horrors, most of the code given in small amounts is fairly easy to "fix" by those with some knowledge of the power flow problem.

Dear Power_community,

I hope this book is good collection of STEADY STATE (power flow) models of all major FACTS controllers for balanced and unbalanced(3 ph) Powerflow studies,Optimal powerflow studies. The authors presented the FACTS models in simple and effective way(their research work from 1990)and also added Matlab code in the book which is an added dimension.

I hope in the next edition authors can extend this Static models by adding FACTS DYNAMIC models and will present to the Power_community. and i think it will be better if code is given in the CD/Floppy rather than printing in the book.
