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).

Reactive power (vars) is required to maintain
the voltage to deliver active power (watts)
through transmission lines. Motor loads and
other loads require reactive power to convert
the flow of electrons into useful work. When
there is not enough reactive power, the voltage
sags down and it is not possible to push the
power demanded by loads through the lines.
In this Presentation we discuss the following:
• What is Reactive Power and where does
it come from?
• Why is it important?
• Reactive Power and Blackouts
• Reactive Power Delivery Limitations
• How Reactive Power Dispatch Has
• Advantages and Disadvantages of
