CIM Issues #5309
Support on FACTS device modeling
Generic FACTS device modeling is currently not available and need to be supported, while only its specialty SVC is supported. It contains, e.g., Static Synchronous Series Compensator (SSSC), Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC), Thyristor-Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC), Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM), and etc.
Wiki Reference: https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/engineering/flexible-ac-transmission-systems#:~:text=FACTS%20devices%20are%20static%20power,congestion%20management%20and%20loss%20optimization.
Initial Step: Review the FACTS device models and work out the draft UML for modeling them.
Note: ENTSO-E & Statnett has already worked on this and made good progress. Can become the basis for standardization.
The task is to present FACTS and control model and eventually add it in CIM18v04. The proposal is using the concepts discussed in Tom Berry's group/control discussions
Discussed during the 15-Feb-2023 meeting and the Action ITems identified in the comments for this date must be executed first to determine a final proposal.
