Performance Investigation Of Static Var Compensator (Svc) With Thyristor Binary Compensator At 500 Kva Distribution Transformer
The electrical distribution systems are consists of large losses as the loads are wide spread, less effective
reactive power compensation facilities and their improper control which results in ineffective utilization of electrical energy.
In solution of that the investigation is carried on static VAr compensator (SVC) with thyristor binary compensator. The work
deals with the analytical studies and implementation of simulation model of static VAr compensator (SVC) at 3Φ, 50Hz,
11kV/440V, DY-11, 500 kVA distribution transformer. The SVC consisting of thyristor switched capacitor bank in binary
sequential steps in conjunction with smallest step size thyristor controlled reactor. This compensation technique facilitates
control on the reactive power depending on load requirement so as maintain power factor near unity always, which results in
efficient electrical power system.
