Availability of power to every sector of the country is essential for the growth and economic development of the country. But there is a huge gap between power demand and power generation. Due to a mismatch in the development of generation and transmission systems and an increase in load demand, the existing systems are overloaded. The performance of the power system deteriorates due to an increase in power demand, size and complexity of the networks. Due to interconnections, stability problems arise in the systems. In this scenario, FACTS devices are used to improve the overall performance, transmission capacity and stability of the system with minimum investment. TCSC is used to enhance the power flow in the system by adjusting the impedance parameter of the line. In the proposed work, the power flow is enhanced in the system using TCSC fired by two different types of pulse generators. They are the Time-based Pulse Generator block of MATLAB and a novel Power Pulse Generator where the gate pulses are obtained from a pulse generator synchronized on the current. Both the single-phase and three-phase representation of the Kanpur Ballabhgarh transmission line with TCSC is used in the present work. The THD analysis is also done in this work which showed that the power quality of the system is improved using TCSC. The load flow analysis is performed in a three-phase representation of the system, which showed that the total generation is increased after using TCSC based on both types of pulse generators.
