Abstract

At the recent years, power system becomes a large complex interconnected network that contains of hundreds of buses and generating stations. . In addition, to provide the required power, new installation of power generators and transmission lines are required. Due to the environmental and economic constraints of installation of new generators and increasing demands, transmission line flows has been increased on the existing transmission lines which may increase the risk of losing voltage stability and blackouts in the system collapse. Flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) controllers have been mainly used for solving various power system stability control problems. The main objective of this paper is an investigate in enhancement of voltage stability via static synchronous series compensator (SSSC). This work is presented to present the transmission line voltage stability & machine oscillation damping stability by using SSSC controller to enhance the stability of a power system. Simulation results shows that SSSC controller is more effective to enhance the voltage stability and increase transmission capacity in a power system. The dynamic performance of SSSC is presented by real time voltage and current waveforms using MATLAB software for IEEE 4 bus system.
