In this paper discussion and demonstration of performance analysis of Static Var Compensator (SVC) FC-TCR type which is applied to control dynamic behavior of transmission systems is made. Dynamic behavior in the sense voltage control issues of transmission system using reactive power compensation is analyzed and performed. Experimental model of medium transmission line at my college has been simulated in MATLAB software to show the importance of reactive power compensation. With the help of simulation the dependence of firing angle of TCR in the reactive power exchange of SVC as well on the THD (total harmonic distortion) level has been shown. Simulations have been shown to determine the importance of co-ordination between fixed capacitor (FC) and thyristor controlled reactor (TCR) in order to provide proper compensation. Four different conditions have been simulated.
