This paper presents modeling guidelines for producing benchmark models suitable for use in electromagnetic transients programs for two thyristor-controlled reactor (TCR) based compensators, the static VAr compensator (SVC) and the thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC). Basic modeling procedures for representing the power electronic circuit lower level controls, and outer level controls are presented.

    ABSTRACT: The research work deals with the optimum placement of the compensating device (FACTS device) to improve the performance of existing transmission lines. The transmission line parameters have been obtained and analysis has been done on that parameters. The results reveal that: Power transfer capability and voltage profile of transmission line is improved with compensating device. Also the effect of location of compensating device on transmission line is studied. Moreover the software package developed using MatLab is found to be quite useful as its working is independent of transmission line length and impedance of series/shunt/series-shunt compensating device. The results demonstrate the performance of transmission line when the location of compensating device is varied.

    ABSTRACT: This paper documents electromagnetic transient simulation models for conventional flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) that do not employ voltage-sourced converter (VSC) technology. The FACTS controllers included in this document are classified into four categories: (1) shunt controllers (2) series controllers (3) combined shunt and series controllers (4) auxiliary controllers. Modeling techniques of these controllers are reviewed and the key aspects of each model are summarized. A comprehensive list of references is also included in this paper to provide further detailed information to the readers.
