Multiple distribution static synchronous compensators for distribution feeder voltage support
Perera, Lasantha B., Ledwich, Gerard, & Ghosh, Arindam (2012) Multiple distribution static synchronous compensators for distribution feeder voltage support. IET Generation, Transmission and Distribution, 6(4), pp. 285-293.
The potential of multiple distribution static synchronous compensators (DSTATCOMs) to improve the voltage profile of radial distribution networks has been reported in the literature by few authors. However, the operation of multiple DSTATCOMs across a distribution feeder may introduce control interactions and/or voltage instability. This study proposes a control scheme that alleviates interactions among controllers and enhances proper reactive power sharing among DSTATCOMs. A generalised mathematical model is presented to analyse the interactions among any number of DSTATCOMs in the network. The criterion for controller design is developed by conducting eigenvalue analysis on this mathematical model. The proposed control scheme is tested in time domain on a sample radial distribution feeder installed with multiple DSTATCOMs and test results are presented.
