Among the Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) devices, Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) is considered as the most powerful and versatile one as it provides simultaneous, real time control of the transmission parameters, voltages, impedances, and phase angles which determine the power flow in AC transmission systems. This paper presents modelling of UPFC and describes its characteristics. The UPFC implemented in this paper is based on Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) and Electro-Magnetic Transients Program (EMTP)/ATPDraw is used to model and analyze it. The simulation results confirm advantages of UPFC in operational performance with respect to the steady state Power flow regulation and the transient stability control.
