Voltage Enhancement Assessment Using Svc Facts Controller
The low voltage profile in any power system due to increase in loading is the major issue to be focused for its
reliable operation. In this view, this project deals with simulation of IEEE-24 bus system using SVC for voltage
enhancement. Power flow solutions are obtained by simulating the IEEE-24 bus system in PSCAD/EMTDC platform. Line
Voltage stability indices (L-index) at various lines are calculated to identify the critical lines. Then SVC devices are
introduced at the buses connecting the critical lines and its effectiveness is evaluated for voltage enhancement. This
assessment is done in two major cases, one with dynamic loading and another with single phase fault imposed at the critical
area. Simulation is developed by using PSCAD/EMTDC simulation software ver. 4.2.
