Abstract

The role of the transmission network in the Power System is to transmit the power generated in the power plants to the load centers and the interconnected power systems. The transmission of electric power has to take place in the most efficient way in addition to providing flexibility in the process. Hence Flexible A.C. Transmission System (FACTS) devices are used. A Static VAR Compensator (SVC) is a shunt-connected FACTS controller that is able to exchange reactive power with the power system in a controlled way of static controllers to enhance the controllability and increase the power transfer capability. In this paper the operation of shunt SVC in the 5 bus system with different loading conditions are studied. Dynamic VAR compensation and voltage control at all the buses are analyzed with and without SVC. Losses of transmission lines with and without SVC are compared. Simulation is carried by using Mi-Power software Simulation package.
