Abstract: The aim of this work is to study the dynamic performance and stability enhancement of Single Machine Infinite Bus System (SMIB) using solar pv cell. HPFC is an advanced FACTS controller which can be installed in a transmission line between the two electrical areas. The main advantage using HPFC is that it can be used to replace or supplement existing equipments. In the present thesis the Phillips-Heffron Model of SMIB Systems are presented. A proposed model of HPFC is presented and incorporated with SMIB models for analysis of the enhancement of stability. All these models are simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Simulation results show that the designed controller has an excellent capability in damping power system oscillations if HPFC parameters are selected carefully. The results when compared to that of existing FACTS controllers show that HPFC gives better performance. The significance of the results are better stability and constant power supply.
