Abstract:What is FACTS devices ?

The Power System of today are mechanically controlled & there is a widespread use of micro-electronics, computers & high-speed communication for control & protection of present transmission systems.

However, the switching devices are mechanical & there is a little high-speed control & another problem with mechanical devices is that control cannot be initiated frequently.

In effect, from the point of view of both dynamic & steady-state operation, the system is really uncontrolled.
