Reactive power compensation capability of a fixed capacitor thyristor controlled reactor type static VAr compensator is being investigated in this paper. The TCR has the power transfer controlling capability only in the lagging power factor range. The range of TCR can be extended by connecting a fixed capacitor in shunt with the TCR. The compensated reactive power can be selectively controlled by appropriately changing the firing angle of the TCR circuit in lagging as well as the leading power
