Improvement of damping characteristics and index evaluation of a wind-PV-thermal-bundled power transmission system by combining PSS and SSSC

The grid integration of large-scale wind and solar energy affects the power flow of wind-PV-thermal-bundled power transmission systems and may introduce an unpredicted threat to the power system's small signal stability. Meanwhile, a power system stabilizer (PSS) and static synchronous series compensator (SSSC) play an important role in improving the static and dynamic stability of the system. Based on this scenario and in view of the actual engineering requirements, the framework of

Afterwards, the situation model is constructed in the IEEE 2-area 4-unit system, and the influence of the PSS and SSSC on the system stability under different operating conditions is analyzed in detail through eigenvalue analysis and time-domain simulation. Finally, an index named the gain rate is defined to describe the improvement of the stability limitations of various wind-PV-thermal operating conditions with the PSS and SSSC. The results indicate (K) that the damping characteristics, dynamic stability and stability limitations for various wind-PV-thermal operating conditions of the wind-PV-thermal-bundled power transmission system can be significantly improved by the interaction of the PSS and SSSC.
