Increasing the Loadability of Power System Network using DSTATCOM
International Journal of Engineering Research and
Due to the rap id increase in the loading a major problem is manifested known as the voltage which has gained a world w ide interest. Most of the power systems are operated closer to their stability limits considering the economic operation. When huge quantities of power is transferred over long distance and due to the inadequate supply of reactive power the voltage instability problems arise and eventually lead to voltage collapse. Hence in the real time system voltage stability assessment the
... knowledge of appropriate loadability of the power system is important. This paper investigates the enhancement of voltage stability using Distribution Static synchronous Compensator (DSTATCOM) in a wind integrated power system. In the scenario of development of renewable energy the wind generation has attain ed a large growth because of the availability and affordable cost. Wind generation requires some device to smoothen the output from a wind turbine and a STATCOM connected to the bus performs this operation along with the property of voltage stability enhancement. The studies made in this paper are d one with power system analysis toolb ox (PSAT), a powerful toolbox in MATLAB for power systemanalysis.
