An important new resource for the international utilitymarket

Over the past two decades, static reactive power compensatorshave evolved into a mature technology and become an integral partof modern electrical power systems. They are one of the key devicesin flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS). Coordination of staticcompensators with other controllable FACTS devices promises notonly tremendously enhanced power system controllability, but alsothe extension of power transfer capability of existing transmissioncorridors to near their thermal capacities, thus delaying or evencurtailing the need to invest in new transmission facilities.

Offering both an in-depth presentation of theoretical conceptsand practical applications pertaining to these power compensators,Thyristor-Based FACTS Controllers for Electrical TransmissionSystems fills the need for an appropriate text on this emergingtechnology. Replete with examples and case studies on controldesign and performance, the book provides an important resource forboth students and engineers working in the field.

From the Back Cover:

An important new resource for the international utilitymarket

Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) technology is fastbecoming a mainstay of modern electrical power systems.Thyristor-based controllers such as Static Var Compensator (SVC)and Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) constitute the keycomponents of FACTS technology that have wide application potentialaround the world, especially in the restructured power systemenvironment.

By integrating material from several publications in theavailable literature, this comprehensive reference book makes anelaborate presentation on:

  • Operating principles, control systems, and modeling ofdifferent SVCs and TCSC
  • Control system performance, including the influence ofmeasurement systems, network resonances, and harmonicinteractions
  • Controller design for enhancing power transfer, stability anddamping, mitigating subsynchronous resonances, preventing voltageinstability, etc.
  • Controller interactions and techniques for coordinating FACTScontrollers
  • Emerging FACTS controllers-STATCOM, SSSC, and UPFC

Thyristor-based FACTS Controllers for Electrical TransmissionSystems offers an in-depth discussion of both theoretical conceptsand practical applications, enhanced by examples and case studiesof control design and system performance. Filling the need for acomprehensive text in this area, the book will prove to be animportant resource for academics, students, and practicingengineers involved in FACTS technology.

About the Author:

R. MOHAN MATHUR is Vice President, Training Support andServices Division, Ontario Power Generation, Toronto, Canada. Until1999 he was Dean, Faculty of Engineering Science and Professor ofElectrical Engineering at the University of Western Ontario,London, Canada, where he continues to be a Professor Emeritus. Forover two decades he has been engaged in research in the area ofelectronic controllers for power transmission systems, includingac/dc converters and active and reactive power compensators for actransmission lines.

RAJIV K. VARMA is Professor of Electrical Engineering atIndian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. He was awarded theGovernment of India BOYSCAST Young Scientist Fellowship in 1992-93to conduct research on FACTS at the University of Western Ontario,London, Canada. Since then he has maintained active researchcollaboration with researchers at the University of WesternOntario. With Wayne Litzenberger he has coedited two editions ofthe Annotated Bibliography of HVDC Transmission and FACTSDevices, 1994-95 and 1996-97. For preparing the Second Edition,he was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship of U.S. EducationalFoundation in India to travel to the United States. His teachingand research interests include Flexible AC Transmission System andPower System Stability. He is a member of the faculty of theDepartment of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University ofWestern Ontario, London, Canada.
