Flexible AC Current Transmission System (FACTS) is a power electronic-based system, composed of static equipment used for the AC transmission of electrical energy. FACTS offers collective controllability and the power transfer ability of the network, as well as results in reduced power supply costs. Complexity in networks has increased the issues in power supply quality, flexibility and reliability.
With the rising demand of power in electricity usage and other applications, it has created countless opportunities for FACTS. Its benefits include reduction in loop flows, voltage fluctuations and reactive power flows. Other benefits are increase in power system security and power loading capability. FACTS controllers provide faster control actions as compared to conventional devices, such as switches or phase shifting transformers. On the other hand, key challenges for global flexible AC transmission systems market (FACTS market) are the cost of these systems, growing diversities in environmental, land-use and regulatory pressures. These challenges have restricted the growth of electric power transmission facilities in many parts of the world.
