Growing demand and aging of network makes it desirable to better control the power flow in power transmission systems. FACTS devices, especially UPFC, provide a fast, smooth control of power system parameters. However, for cost and reliability reasons, the application is limited. This paper presents a new concept for power flow control by distributed UPFC. The system, called distributed power flow controller (DPFC), consists of several low-power series converters and one shunt large-power converter without common dc link. Also new is that the power exchange between the shunt and series parts is through the existing transmission line at a harmonic frequency. This solution enables the DPFC to fully control all power system parameters, and it reduces the cost and increases the reliability of device at the same time.
