A Review on Reactive Power Control in Transmission Line Using Various Methods
Anubha Sharma,  Preeti
The increasing power requirement has led to the wide expansion and development of power system nowadays. The reason behind this technological improvement is the inadequate energy sources that impose limitations on power generation. Moreover many companies are forced to make use of the already present resources which increases load on the transmission lines. This leads to the poor stability and voltage-regulation. These problems have made the power system planners to enhance the power system performance for bulk power transfer. To improve the performance of ac power systems, the reactive power is managed in an efficient way and this is known as reactive power compensation. This has led to the use of power electronic devices of which FACTS is gaining more interest today. The Static VAR Compensation is one of the FACTS device, that can be used for the reactive power control. Also, static synchronous compensator plays a very important role in control of voltage in AC Transmission Systems. Out of different FACT devices, UPFC is the one which is gaining much popularity these days. The most important feature of UPFC is that it has the ability to provide series compensation, shunt compensation, phase angle control altogether.
