Development System for FACTS Power Transmission System Application Note

Integrated OpenVPX, FPGA-based Development System.


Provide a high performance development platform with which the customer could design a system used to maximize power transmission efficiencies. Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) uses power electronics to improve the control over a power system’s voltage profiles in order to maximize the efficiency of power distribution through the grid.

Elma worked closely with the customer in defining the technical requirements, starting with a technology tutorial on the OpenVPX standard itself. Elma brought together the necessary technical experts at the hardware and software level to provide the right solution for this project’s requirements. A very high performance FPGA based system was developed in order to provide the right tools for the project.
