Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) In this method, the capacitive reactance connected in series with the power system. It consists of a capacitor bank in which multiple capacitors are connected in a series-parallel connection. The capacitor bank is connected in parallel with the . With series capacitor compensation (chosen to keep mid point voltage at pu when P = Po) maximum power transfer capability increased to pu voltage regulation significantly improved. CRP - pk Compensation Requirements. In all cases it is not required to satisfy both the objectives of.

A machine thus running is called a synchronous condenser. Here X C = capacitive reactance of the series capacitor bank per phase and X L is the total inductive reactance of the line/phase. The ratio X C /X L is called “compensation factor” and when expressed as a percentage is known as the “percentage compensation“. The reactance of the series capacitive compensation is -aX where X is the line reactance. The factor a Page: 3 of 6 is referred to as the compensation and in practice is never more than about and usually substantially less. In this tutorial example, the series capacitor .

Series capacitor compensation is used to improve the utilization of existing power systems. Subsynchronous resonance (SSR) can be caused by series compensated lines, which would lead to turbogenerator shaft breakdown. A novel approach was presented in this paper to analyze the characteristics and influence factors of SSR in a series compensated transmission system. Series capacitor is self-regulating, i.e., its reactive power output increases with line loading ideally suited for applications where reduction of line length (θ) is the primary consideration improves voltage regulation and system stability A combination of series and shunt capacitors may provide the ideal form of compensation in some cases.

XC = reactance of the series capacitor δ = angular separation between the line ends From (1) it is evident that the flow of active power can be increased by decreasing the effective series reactance of the line. In other words, if a reactance of opposite sign (i.e.

a capacitive reactance. The series capacitor is a viable solution to the flicker problem. For the 60 Hz component of the motor starting current, the capacitive reactance of the series capacitor nullifies the inductive reactance of the feeder.

Therefore, the series capacitor reduces the flicker level significantly at. For example: if we require compensation for two KW motors then changing field current of the synchronous Series-capacitor compensation for synchronous-condenser reactance book according to the given load would result in the required power factor.

if one of the motors stops then decreasing the field current would result in less leading current from the synchronous condenser and the required power factor. VAR compensation techniques are used to modify the natural electrical characteristics of electric power system. Series compensation modifies the reactance parameter of the transmission or distribution system, while shunt compensation changes the equivalent load impedance.

Definition: Series compensation is the method of improving the system voltage by connecting a capacitor in series with the transmission line. In other words, in series compensation, reactive power is inserted in series with the transmission line for improving the impedance of the system.

It improves the power transfer capability of the line. And hence reactive power compensation becomes so important. This is commonly done by a capacitor bank. in series with the load, the load current always passes through the series capacitor bank.

Actually, the capacitive reactance of the series capacitor neutralizes the inductive reactance of the line hence, Synchronous Condenser. Shunt compensation of reactive power can be employed either at load level, substation level, or at transmission level.

It can be capacitive (leading) or inductive (lagging) reactive power, although in most cases compensation is capacitive. The most common form of leading reactive power compensation is by connecting shunt capacitors to the line.

Where x is the line series reactance, x S is the series capacitor reactance, and r is the line series resistance. In addition, the effect of series compensation on the transmis. The static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) and thyristor-controlled series capacitor (TCSC) are some of the FACTS control devices which provide series compensation to reactance of the lines to which they are connected, while the static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) and static VAR compensator (SVC) (where VAR stands for volt–ampere reactive) are FACTS devices which provide shunt compensation.

With series compensation through Fixed Series Capacitors (FSC) it’s possible to compensate the inductive reactance. Raising the utilization levels Fixed Series Capacitors help to better utilize existing overhead lines by increasing their transmission capacities and contribute to steady state and dynamic stability of the system.

Its purpose is not to convert electric power to mechanical power or vice versa, but to adjust conditions on the electric power transmission grid. SERIES COMPENSATION: When the line has the value of high reactance to resistance ratio than the inductive reactance of the transmission line could be decreased by introducing series capacitors as a results in low voltage drop.

If a load with lagging power factor is connected at the end the voltage drop in the line is given by. Adjustable Speed Synchronous Condenser (ASSC) The adjustable speed synchronous condenser is not exactly a FACTS compensator, as it contains an electric machine.

However, it may be an interesting shunt device to compensate reactive power continuously and relatively large amounts of active power for a short time.

In the voltage compensation mode, the GCSC is to maintain the rated compensating voltage in face of decreasing line current over a defined interval Imincompensation mode the capacitive reactance XC, is selected so as to produce the rated compensating voltage with I= Imin, i.e., VCmax = XC Imin.

A synchronous condenser or a synchronous compensator is a synchronous motor running without a mechanical load. It can generate or absorb reactive volt-ampere (VAr) by varying the excitation of its field winding. It can be made to take a leading current with over-excitation of its field winding.

Series Compensation: Capacitor are connected in series in the lines and are used mainly for boosting the receiving end voltage, increase in transmission capacity and reduction in losses in the lines. The capacitive reactance of series capacitor neutralizes the inductive reactance of the line hence, reduces effective reactance of the line.

Connecting capacitors in series occurs in many circuits. Knowing how to calculate the overall value, even if it is a rough calculation in your head is very useful. If a more accurate value is needed then the online series capacitor calculator can be very useful.

Previous page Next page.The compensation of line reactance by series capacitors is another method of improving stability. For lines longer than km this method has proved economical as a means of increasing stability.

The use of shunt reactors will reduce the danger of instability on lightly loaded lines.Shunt and series capacitors improve the voltage profile of the transmission line. at the point of compensation. Hence the line reactance does decrease; but for the same ATC of lines and fault.
