Static Analysis of Statcom for Enhancement of Voltage on Transmission Line
MetadataShow full item record
The recent development of Power- Electronics controller introduces the use of various FACTS devices in power systems networks. FACTS devices can control the power system network condition in expediting manner and this feature of FACTS devices can be demoralizing to improve the steady state stability of a system. This paper aims to investigate the static analysis based on a 6-pulse voltage-source converter for Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM). A 3-bus system has been used for the proposed STATCOM model. The STATCOM model and its simulation are performed using MATLAB’s Simulink and Power System Blockset. Static analysis is done for STATCOM to verify its capability in improving voltage regulation in the transmission systems.
