Paper Title - Reactive Power Compensation for Enhancement of Voltage Stability in Wind Energy Conversion System
In the electrical power system reactive power compensation plays a predominant role to maintain the
voltage stability and power factor. Reactive power compensation can be done by power electronics devices
using L and C components this will improve the voltage profile and losses will be reduced. FACTS controllers
can be used for various applications to enhance power system performance. In this paper we have considered
many FACT devices such as STACOM, SSSC and UPFC. We have done the analysis using PSCAD with
different FACT devices, compare to other FACT devices UPFC provides better control for independent of real
and reactive power flow in system during the contingency. Moreover UPFC gives better rotor stability of wind
energy conversion system. The results have been verified with IEEE 30 bus system using PSCAD software.
Results shows that UPFC gave better controllability and stability of the power system compare to other devices.
