An important new resource for the international utility market Over the past two decades, static reactive power compensators have evolved into a mature technology and become an integral part of modern electrical power systems. They are one of the key devices in flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS). Coordination of static compensators with other controllable FACTS devices promises not only tremendously enhanced power system controllability, but also the extension of power transfer capability of existing transmission corridors to near their thermal capacities, thus delaying or even curtailing the need to invest in new transmission facilities. Offering both an in-depth presentation of theoretical concepts and practical applications pertaining to these power compensators, Thyristor-Based FACTS Controllers for Electrical Transmission Systems fills the need for an appropriate text on this emerging technology. Replete with examples and case studies on control design and performance, the book provides an important resource for both students and engineers working in the field.
From the Back Cover
An important new resource for the international utility market
Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) technology is fast becoming a mainstay of modern electrical power systems. Thyristor-based controllers such as Static Var Compensator (SVC) and Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) constitute the key components of FACTS technology that have wide application potential around the world, especially in the restructured power system environment.
By integrating material from several publications in the available literature, this comprehensive reference book makes an elaborate presentation on: Operating principles, control systems, and modeling of different SVCs and TCSC Control system performance, including the influence of measurement systems, network resonances, and harmonic interactions Controller design for enhancing power transfer, stability and damping, mitigating subsynchronous resonances, preventing voltage instability, etc. Controller interactions and techniques for coordinating FACTS controllers Emerging FACTS controllersSTATCOM, SSSC, and UPFC
Thyristor-based FACTS Controllers for Electrical Transmission Systems offers an in-depth discussion of both theoretical concepts and practical applications, enhanced by examples and case studies of control design and system performance. Filling the need for a comprehensive text in this area, the book will prove to be an important resource for academics, students, and practicing engineers involved in FACTS technology.
