transmission line, which means that all the equipment has

to be installed on a fully insulated platform. Significant

device from the group FACTS is a TCSC, which finds

application in solving many

problems in the power

system. Its properties can increase the power lines

transmission capacity and power flow control. It also

provides a wide range of other uses to ensure effective,

trouble-free and economical operation of power systems.

Simulation behaviors of these devices are very important

before the real deployment of these devices to the power

system. Various computing and simulation programs,

which help in understanding the activities and setting

appropriate parameters of these devices, have found its

application to modeling and simulating these devices.

N. G. Hingorani and L. Gyugyi in [1] gives The

information about all series type facts controller design and

the basic definition, which define that how the series facts

controller are differ from the shunt controller for the

compensation of reactive power. Mathur R. Mohan and

Rajiv K. Varma in [2] described TCSC advantages, modes

of operation, controller, Analysis of TCSC, capability

characteristics, harmonic performance, losses and modeling

of TCSC. The operation, reactance characteristic and

resonance condition of TCSC from the paper [3] of

resonance behavior, For increasing power

transfer

capability the better degree of compensation in region

between 0.3 to 0.7. The reactive power at the receiving end

side is controlled using TCSC at different firing angle to

verify the TCSC characteristics curve[4]. The main aim of

this paper is to analyze the design of a TCSC controller for

stability enhancement, under normal operation and fault

conditions at different load power flows.

The power system stability enhance by decrease the

effective transfer reactance of transmission line at sending

end side and receiving end side for that the firing angles of

the thyristors are controlled to adjust the TCSC reactance in

accordance with a system control strategy, normally in

response to some system parameter variations.

belongs to the flexible alternating current transmission

systems (FACTS) family of devices. It is a variable capacitive

and inductive reactance device that can be used to provide

series compensation in power transmission lines. One of the

significant advantages that a TCSC has over other series

compensation devices is that the TCSC's reactance is

instantaneously and continuously variable. This means that

the TCSC can be used not only to provide series compensation

but can also be used to enhance the stability of the power

system. In this paper, performance of TCSC is analyzed.

Initially, Real and reactive power flow through the

transmission line have been analyzed for fixed and then after

the same parameters are evaluated by inserting controllable

capacitor in the same transmission network. The considered

topology of TCSC consists of back to back thyristors that

controls the reactance of the TCSC. By changing the firing

angle of these back to back thyristors it is possible to vary the

reactance of the TCSC. As per the TCSC characteristics, in

inductive region at the firing angle =900 to 1300 the power

flow decreasing and in capacitive region at the firing angle

=1400 to 1800 the power flow increasing. For the simulation

3-phase model degree of compensation is 0.55, to increase

power transfer capability. The simulation is carried out by

using software package MATLAB /simulink.

INTRODUCTION

level, counted nowadays by the manufacturers as a

FACTS-device, went into operation in 1950. Series

Compensation is used in order to decrease the transfer

reactance of a power line at rated frequency. A series

capacitor installation generates reactive power that in a

self-regulating manner balances a fraction of the line's

transfer reactance. The result is that the line is electrically

shortened, which improves angular stability, voltage

stability and power sharing between parallel lines.

In this paper the simulation on parallel line with

different load and different firing angle to evaluated

performance of TCSC characteristics in inductive region

and capacitive region for the control the reactive power at

the receiving end. The paper is structured as follows:

Section II gives the introduction about the basic TCSC

scheme and operation of TCSC controller. Section III

briefly describes the control scheme of a typical TCSC

controller. In Section IV the reactive power control at the

receiving end side by using TCSC. In Section V modeling

inductive, depending on the trigger angle of the back to

back thyristors; The capacitive reactance characteristic of

the TCSC is a highly non-linear function of the trigger

angle of the back to back thyristors, The TCSC consists of

the series compensating capacitor shunted by a ThyristorControlled Reactor. In a practical TCSC implementation,

several such basic compensators may be connected in

series to obtain the desired voltage rating and operating

characteristics. The basic idea behind the TCSC scheme is

to provide a continuously variable capacitor by means of

partially canceling the effective compensating capacitance

by the TCR. The TCR at the fundamental system frequency

is continuously variable reactive impedance, controllable

by delay angle . The steady state impedance of the TCSC

is that of a parallel LC circuit, consisting of a fixed

capacitive impedance XC.

The variable inductive impedance XL():-

TCSC

belongs to the Flexible AC Transmission Systems

(FACTS) group of power systems devices. The concept of

the TCSC has been around since the mid 1980s, with the

first known commercial installation being in 1992 in the

United States of America. The TCSC controller was

developed for the Kanpur-Ballabhgarh 400kV single circuit

ac transmission line located in North India.

A TCSC is a series-controlled capacitive reactance that

can provide continuous control of power on the ac line over

a wide range. The principle of variable-series compensation

is simply to increase the fundamental-frequency voltage

across an fixed capacitor (FC) in a series compensated line

through appropriate variation of the firing angle . This

enhanced voltage changes the effective value of the seriescapacitive reactance. Essentially a TCSC is a variable

reactance device that can be used to provide an adjustable

series compensating reactance to a transmission line. Its

advantage over other series compensating devices is that its

reactance can be instantaneously and precisely controlled.

A TCSC consists of a fixed capacitor in parallel with a

variable inductive reactance as shown in Fig. 1. This

variable inductive reactance is obtained by connecting back

to back thyristors in series with a fixed-reactance inductor,

and is known as a Thyristor Controlled Reactor or TCR. By

controlling the trigger angle of the back to back thyristors,

it is possible to vary the effective inductive reactance of the

TCR, and hence control the reactance provided by the

TCSC.

on mode for prolonged durations, the conduction losses

are minimized by installing an ultrahigh-speed contact

(UHSC) across the valve. This metallic contact offers a

virtually lossless feature similar to that of circuit breakers

and is capable of handling many switching operations. The

metallic contact is closed shortly after the thyristor valve is

turned on, and it is opened shortly before the valve is

turned off. During a sudden overload of the valve, and also

during fault conditions, the metallic contact is closed to

alleviate the stress on the valve.

firstly, to provide electromechanical damping between

large electrical systems by changing the reactance of a

specific interconnecting power line. Secondly, the TCSC

shall change its apparent impedance for sub-synchronous

frequencies, such that a prospective subsynchronous

resonance is avoided.

There are essentially three modes of TCSC operation:1. Bypassed-Thyristor mode:2. Blocked-Thyristor Mode:3. Partially Conducting Thyristor, or Vernier, Mode:-

can have various roles in the operation and control of

power systems, such as scheduling power flow; decreasing

unsymmetrical components; reducing net loss; providing

voltage support; limiting short-circuit currents; mitigating

sub synchronous resonance (SSR); damping the power

oscillation; and enhancing transient stability. TCSC is one

of the most important and best known series FACTS

controllers. It has been in use for many years to increase

line power transfer as well as to enhance system stability.

The firing angles of the thyristors are controlled to adjust

the TCSC reactance in accordance with a system analogy,

normally in response to some system parameter variations.

According to the of the thyristor firing angle () or

conduction angle (), this process can be modeled as a fast

switch between corresponding reactance offered to the

power system.

(MOV), essentially a nonlinear resistor, is connected across

the series capacitor to prevent the occurrence of highcapacitor over voltages. Not only does the MOV limit the

voltage across the capacitor, but it allows the capacitor to

remain in circuit even during fault conditions and helps

improve the transient stability. The circuit breaker (CB) is

installed across the capacitor for controlling its insertion in

the line. In addition, the CB bypasses the capacitor if

severe fault or equipment-malfunction events occur. A

current-limiting inductor (LD) is incorporated in the circuit

to restrict both the magnitude and the frequency of the

capacitor current during the capacitor-bypass operation.

The total current passing through the TCSC is

sinusoidal; the equivalent reactance at the fundamental

frequency can be represented as a variable reactance XTCSC.

There exists a steady-state relationship between and

reactance XTCSC. In power transmission applications, the

degree of compensation is usually chosen in the range 0.3

k 0.7. The relationship can be described the following

with and without TCSC, a LLLG fault is applied at

receiving end bus. The fault is cleared by breaker in 0.04s.

The purpose of simulation for parallel line is to increase

power transfer capability with used of TCSC controller. In

the first case without TCSC fixed capacitor the power

transfer is lower and adding a TCSC controller in one of

line as per simulation model the power transfer capacity

increase with different firing angle.

power flow in given lines according to level desired. This

change is achieved by changing the impedance of line, in

which is installed TCSC device. With the entry values of

angle switching thyristors , TCSC can change the

impedance of the line and thereby regulates the power flow

as required. When such a change power flow, the power

flow on lines is reallocated to another ratio, but the

resulting flow performance remains unchanged.

inductive and therefore there is a change in power flow on

lines No.1 and No.2. This value of the angle of switching

leads to decrease power flow on line, whose value has

142.7 MVAR (measured at the load).

In Fig. 9 is showed situation in modeled electrical network

of P = 295.8MW to Q = 147.9 MVAR (measured at the

The result of convectional compensation and TCSC

compensation method shows that the power is decreasing

in case of TCSC compensation at the firing angle between

900 to 1300(inductive mode region) and the power is

increasing at the firing angle between 1400 and 1800

(capacitive region). The degree of compensation is 0.55 for

this simulation model, so the power transfer capability

increases.
