Abstract: This paper presents a time delay finite time controller (TDFTC) applied to a unified power flow controller (UPFC) to achieve rapid and finite time reference signal tracking of power flow in presence of plant uncertainties. The TDFTC is a nonlinear control based on the time delay disturbance estimator and the Lyapunov's stability theory to estimate the disturbances and cancel them. The TDFTC overcomes the drawback of traditional linear PI control, which is typically tuned for one specific operating condition, and reduces chattering by using lower design gains. In this paper, first a state space complete dynamic model of UPFC is established based on Kirchhoff's equations and Park's transformation and then TDFTC law is developed for the UPFC system. The proposed control is validated via a detailed simulation on a two bus system. Simulation results show power, effectiveness, robustness and accuracy of the proposed controller.

Keywords: power flow; unified power flow controller; UPFC; time delay estimation; finite time control; Lyapunov function.
