Modern societies are greatly dependent on electricity, businesses, telecommunications and majority of services that deliver complex technical systems. Technical infrastructure which is well functioning is significant for people's economic welfare, national security and everyday life; therefore, high quality service is expected from the electric grid.


Other than weather, complex power transmission networks have been noted as the main reason electric power interruptions (Landstedt and Holmstrm, 2007; p 7).
Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) according to Pandey (2008) is one that technology allows the industries to enhance the utilization of existing transmission, generation reserves as well as of power system performance; through a system that is more flexible and one which increase stability margins. On the other hand, the High Voltage Direct Current or HVDC is another technology particularly for long distance electricity transmission using submarine cables or overhead transmission lines (Ngamroo, 2004).
The investigation will employ a highly controlled experimental design to examine use of both the HVDC and FACTS controllers in enhancing and/or stabilizing as well as strengthening the electrical power security in a power network. ...
