Reactive Power Compensation Technologies: State-of-the-Art Review
This paper presents an overview of the state of the art in reactive
power compensation technologies. The principles of operation, design
characteristics and application examples of Var compensators
implemented with thyristors and self-commutated converters are
presented. Static Var generators are used to improve voltage regulation,
stability, and power factor in ac transmission and distribution
systems. Examples obtained from relevant applications describing
the use of reactive power compensators implemented with newstatic
Var technologies are also described.
Keywords—Reactive power, static Var compensators (SVCs).
