Static compensators using thyristor control with saturated or low-reactance linear reactors

Journal Article:

Abstract

Alternative key components of variable static equipment for reactive power compensation and voltage control in a.c. transmission systems are saturated reactors (SR) and thyristor-controlled reactors (TCR). This paper reports some recent developments aimed at improving the performance and economy of both types of scheme. Advantages of using low-percentage reactance values in a TCR scheme are considered, and methods of dealing with the increased harmonic distortions and of employing transformer leakage reactance. The paper discusses the possibility of combining the advantages of 'external' thyristor control with the 'inherent' action of the harmonic-compensated SR, and the performance of a practical TCSR is presented.
