Technical, Regulatory and Economic Development for Distributed Flexible AC Transmission Systems – D-FACTS

This paper assesses the adoption of M-FACTS solutions (also referred to as DFACTS due to its distributed nature) from a technical, regulatory, and economic nature. This document covers the cost/benefit analysis and the regulatory point of view of DFACTS to explore the feasibility of applications in electrical power systems, starting from a perspectivewhere a wide variety of characteristics are analyzed. The intention is to favor the conception of a possible large-scale deployment of DFACTS in transmission systems, with innovative solutions to network restrictions and other relevant problems.
