Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) controllers’ commissioning, compliance testing, and model validation tests

The commissioning of a new or upgraded plant that interacts with the power system is an essential stage in the process of connecting a plant to the power system. The underlying principles for the commissioning of all generating systems, FACTS controllers and HVDC links are the same. This is to ensure that the connection of the plant to the power system:
• does not adversely affect other network users.
• does not adversely affect power system security or quality of supply.
• minimises the risk of damage to the equipment of other network users.
