Series and Shunt Compensation of Transmission Lines

Series and Shunt Compensation of Transmission Lines: The performance of long EHV AC transmission systems can be improved by reactive compensation of series or shunt (parallel) type. Series capacitors and shunt reactors are used to reduce artificially the series reactance and shunt susceptance of lines and thus they act as the line compensators. Series and …

Mathematical Formulation of Voltage Stability

Mathematical Formulation of Voltage Stability: Mathematical Formulation of Voltage Stability – The slower forms of voltage instability are normally analyzed as steady state problems using power flow simulation as the primary study method. “Snap¬≠shots” in time following an outage or during load build up are simulated. Besides these post-disturbance power flows, two other power flow …
