Torsional Interaction Studies on a Power System Compensated by SSSC and Fixed Capacitor
Pillai, G, Ghosh, Arindam, & Joshi, Avinash (2003) Torsional Interaction Studies on a Power System Compensated by SSSC and Fixed Capacitor. IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, 18(3), pp. 988-993.
In this paper, a static synchronous series compensator (SSSC), along with a fixed capacitor, is used to avoid torsional mode instability in a series compensated transmission system. A 48-step harmonic neutralized inverter is used for the realization of the SSSC. The system under consideration is the IEEE first benchmark model on SSR analysis. The system stability is studied both through eigenvalue analysis and EMTDC/PSCAD simulation studies. It is shown that the combination of the SSSC and the fixed capacitor improves the synchronizing power coefficient. The presence of the fixed capacitor ensures increased damping of small signal oscillations. At higher levels of fixed capacitor compensation, a damping controller is required to stabilize the torsional modes of SSR.
