Reactive Power Compensation Technologies: State-of-the-Art Review

Reactive Power Compensation Technologies: State-of-the-Art Review

Invited Paper

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).
