This oscillation groups the system into two parts with generators in one part oscillating against the other part (inter-area oscillation). In large interconnected systems it is common to find a natural response of a group of closely coupled machines oscillating against other groups of machines. • The lowest frequency mode involves all generators of the system.1 Hz to 3 Hz. • These oscillations have a frequency range of 0.Multimachine Stability • Modern power systems are interconnected and operate close to their stability limits. 19 .

• These small frequency oscillations fall under the category of dynamic stability and are analyzed in linear domain through the linearization of the entire interconnected systems model. the inter-area oscillation can be initiated by a small disturbance in any part of the system.Multimachine Stability • The higher frequency modes are usually localized with small groups oscillating against each other (local modes). 20 . • Unfortunately.

Shunt Compensation of Transmission Systems A device that that is connected in parallel with a transmission line is called a shunt compensator. It can • Improve the voltage profile • Improve the power-angle characteristics • Improve the stability margin • provide damping to power oscillations 24 . It is referred to as a compensator since it compensates for the reactive power in the ac system.

25 . Let us assume that it is connected at the midpoint of a lossless line.Ideal Shunt Compensator The ideal shunt compensator is represented by an ideal current source that supplies only reactive power and no real power.

26 .Voltage Profile Improvement The figure shows the ideal voltage-current characteristics of an ideal shunt compensator in which the midpoint voltage held constant irrespective of the current injected.

Practical Shunt Compensator • The above example demonstrates the functioning of a Static Compensator (STATCOM) that produces a voltage. the fundamental component of which is in phase with the midpoint voltage. • The first generation shunt compensator is the Static VAr Compensator (SVC). It actually is a variable reactance. It consists of an inverter based Synchronous Voltage Source (SVS) and a connecting transformer. 42 .

• Similarly. the device must be switched on at a particular instant of the voltage cycle. • For example. let us consider that a TSC is supplied by a voltage source vS and has a capacitor voltage vC and a current iC through the capacitor. • Hence severe switching transients occurs if a TSC is switched off while the current thorough it is not zero.TSC .Transient-free Switching • TSC suddenly blocks current or allows the current through it. 49 .

STATCOM - VAr Generation

If ∠θ =∠φ, then the direction of the flow of purely reactive current Iq will depend on the voltage magnitudes V1 and V2.

• If V1 > V2 then the current flows from the ac system to the SVS and the converter absorbs reactive (inductive) power.

• If V2 > V1 then the current flows from the SVS to the ac system and the converter generates reactive (capacitive) power for the ac system.

• The dc capacitor voltage can be regulated by replenishing the losses due to switching and in the coupling transformer circuit by drawing power from the ac system.STATCOM . • Therefore ∠φ must lag ∠θ by a small amount such that the dc capacitor voltage is held constant. the voltage across the capacitor will fall if the STATCOM is not lossless.DC Capacitor Control • However pure reactive injection or absorption is neither possible nor desirable. • Since the converter is supplied by a dc capacitor. 76 .

77 . • This makes the control loop slow.STATCOM .Control • In a multi-step converter. • Therefore the voltage magnitude V2 can be increased or decreased vis-à-vis the magnitude of V1 by charging or discharging the dc capacitor through the control of φ. the fundamental component of the output voltage is determined by the magnitude of the dc capacitor voltage.

the fundamental component of the output voltage magnitude can be changed by changing either the capacitor voltage or the modulation index. 78 . • In a sinusoidal PWM. Alternatively flying capacitor topology can be used.STATCOM . • The capacitor voltage imbalance problem in diode-clamped topology makes its use restrictive.Control • Pulse width modulation (PWM) can effectively be used in a multilevel converter.
