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
The series compensation
is also used to reduce the effective power losses and to improve line stability limits , .
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.
GE was responsible for the design, supply, and testing of their original series compensation
substation in Vittersjo located 206 kilometers north of Stockholm.
GE s Digital Energy business today announced it will provide series compensation
capabilities to three of SP Power Systems Limited s (Scottish Power) facilities in southern Scotland, helping the utility meet and mitigate today s highly complex and technical grid challenges.
