Abstract

The role of power flow control is increasing in importance due to variable resources and the difficulty of siting new transmission. While HVDC, flexible AC transmission systems, and transmission switching are utilized today, their capabilities have been incorporated into existing operations decision support tools, such as energy management systems, only to a very limited extent. As a result, such flexible transmission assets are underutilized. This special section of the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems is focused on software development, modeling, and algorithms that address practical challenges on real-world test cases in order to achieve near-term industry adoption.
