Enhancement of Voltage Stability Margin Using FACTS Controllers

H. B. Nagesh and P. S. Puttaswamy
Abstract—This paper presents a methodology for selection of location of static VAR compensator based on static voltage stability analysis of a power system. The analysis presented here uses the L-index of load buses. This includes voltage stability information of a normal power flow in the range of 0 to 1(no load to voltage collapse). An approach has been developed to select a suitable size and location of static VAR compensator as required in an IEEE-14 bus system. The STATCOM and SVC are used in the continuation power flow process for static voltage stability analysis to enhance stability margin.

Index Terms—L-index, loading margin, STATCOM, SVC.
