August 14,2003-black out in united states.

Stability: Ability of the system to maintain synchronism Steady state stability: small disturbances Transient stability: sudden-disturbances

Using FACTS devices(flexible ac transmission) -Increases power transfer capability -provide direct control of power flow. -increases loading capability of lines to their thermal limits. -increases system security through raising transient stability limit.

Most versatile FACTS device

Shunt device used for

Improve Voltage Profile Control Power flow and Improve Transient Stability of Power System

Voltage Regulation: Under light loads: To minimize or completely diminish line overvoltage Under heavy loads: To maintain certain voltage levels

P = (V1V2) sin / X Q = V1(V1 V2cos) / X

Power Flow Control: When system voltage is low: generates reactive power (STATCOM capacitive). When system voltage is high: absorbs reactive power (STATCOM inductive). In steady state operation: V2=V1 (=0) so only reactive power is flowing (P=0). If V2< V1, Q is flowing from V1 to V2 : It absorbs reactive power

If V2 > V1, Q is flowing from V2 to V1:It generating reactive power The amount of reactive power is given by Q = (V1(V1 V2 )) / X. Advantages: Has no inertia and Does not significantly alter the existing system impedance

If a dc storage battery or other dc voltage source were used to replace the dc capacitor, the controller can exchange real and reactive power with the transmission system, extending its region of operation from two to four quadrants.

P,Q flows are positive : Power is going into the device P,Q flows are negative : Power is going out of the device

What is sssc? Types and Parts Approach for sssc -valves -PWM use of sssc Analogous to ideal syn. Voltage source

4 quadrant operation

Relation is complex Restricted to use exchange reactive power only Losses

Main function of converter1 is to supply the real power demanded by converter2 at the DC link. Converter2 injects a voltage Vpq with phase angle in series with line via an coupling transformer. Harmonic content

Provide simultaneous, real-time control of all basic power system parameters (transmission voltage, impedance and phase angle) . Most sophisticated power flow controller.
