The access of unified power flow controllers (UPFC) has changed the structure and operation mode of power grids all across the world, and it has brought severe challenges to the traditional real-time calculation of security correction based on traditional models. Considering the limitation of computational efficiency regarding complex, physical models, a data-driven power system security correction method with UPFC is, in this paper, proposed. Based on the complex mapping relationship between the operation state data and the security correction strategy, a two-stage deep neural network (DNN) learning framework is proposed, which divides the offline training task of security correction into two stages: in the first stage, the stacked auto-encoder (SAE) classification model is established, and the node correction state (0/1) output based on the fault information; in the second stage, the DNN learning model is established, and the correction amount of each action node is obtained based on the action nodes output in the previous stage. In this paper, the UPFC demonstration project of Nanjing West Ring Network is taken as a case study to validate the proposed method. The results show that the proposed method can fully meet the real-time security correction time requirements of power grids, and avoid the inherent defects of the traditional model method without an iterative solution and can also provide reasonable security correction strategies for N-1 and N-2 faults.
