    ABSTRACT: This research studies the application of static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) to fixed speed wind farms. Wind farms are located far away from the grid and the power has to be transmitted over long transmission line. Long transmission lines limit the amount of transmitted power and increases the reactive power consumption in the transmission line. Since the SSSC is a series-connected flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) device, it has two points of connection (two terminals) with the transmission line per phase. In this paper, a control system for the SSSC is proposed to control the voltage at one terminal of the SSSC output terminals to maintain the voltage at the point of connection of the wind farm and the grid. Digital simulations of a small wind farm, using HYPERSIM, are used to determine the feasibility of the proposed control system of the SSSC.

    ABSTRACT: Commercial installations of voltage-source converter-high voltage direct current (VSC-HVDC) are now in service as asynchronous link and as underwater/underground DC transmission. The research reported in his paper is directed to providing VSC-HVDC with synchronizing power and damping power so that after a transient the steady-state is reached in minimal time. Damping power is achieved by injecting incremental power which is proportional to the frequency deviation measured by a phase lock loop (PLL). Synchronizing power is achieved by: (a) introducing a delay in the power measurement and (b) by incorporating a static synchronous series compensation (SSSC) in the VSC-station. The effectiveness of both the synchronizing and damping power is demonstrated through digital simulations of a turbine-generator system which is connected to a VSC-HVDC station. It is shown that with the synchronizing power and damping power, recovery from the fault disturbance is very much faster.
