series compensation

series compensation

[′sir·ēz ‚käm·pən′sā·shən]
(control systems)
(electricity)
The insertion of variable, controlled, high-voltage series capacitors into transmission lines in order to modify the impedance structure of a transmission network so as to adjust the power-flow distribution on individual lines and thus increase the power flow across such compensated lines.

Flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) segmented on the basis of compensation type includes shunt compensation, series compensation, and combined series & shunt compensation.
It covers power quality standards and monitoring, passive shunt and series compensation, active shunt compensation, active series compensation, unified power quality compensators, loads that cause power quality problems, passive power filters, shunt active power filters, series active power filters, and hybrid power filters.
Some FACTS devices controlled by power thyristors such as, for example, Static Var Compensator or Controlled Series Compensation or their prototypes have been put into operation.
GE will equip ISA with state of the art Series Compensation banks.
The series compensation is also used to reduce the effective power losses and to improve line stability limits [15], [16].
The technology that could be applied in wind energy will support the grid with shunt and series compensation to mitigate voltage dips, which are caused by grid faults or severe disturbances.
Harmonizer takes measurements of active and reactive power, power factor, current and voltage variations, harmonics and transients and typical applications include analysing locations for reactive power compensation in a network, calculating regulation cycles for optimum harmonic-and power-flow control, sizing capacitor banks for shunt or series compensation, calculating and designing harmonic filters for the suppression of harmonic distortion, and sizing surge arresters for transient ovcrvoltage limitation.
It has also been shown in a previous study that the series compensation device such as the DVR as shown in Fig.
