The paper discusses the concept of a mini custom power park in which the voltage inside the park is tightly regulated by a distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM). It will be shown on the basis of simulations with ideal components that solid state protection devices, along with the DSTATCOM will eliminate many transients in all the loads of the park during disturbances. Moreover, the DSTATCOM, backed by a diesel generator, will supply the most sensitive loads during the total line outages, thereby nearly making them both transient and interruption free. In this paper, a configuration of the park is proposed and then various issues involved with the operation of the park are discussed. The proposed operation of the custom power park is verified through extensive digital computer simulation studies.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
