Reactive Power Compensation and Voltage Control

Description For Reactive Power Compensation And Voltage Control

The reactive power compensation and voltage control training course simply helps you to understand the physical meaning of reactive power, fundamentals of reactive power compensations, different solutions for reactive power compensation, concept of harmonics and voltage stability.

By taking the reactive power compensation and voltage control training course you will be able to recognize the difference between load compensation and line compensation, difference between shunt compensation and series compensation, idea of synchronous condensers and power electronic based compensation. Moreover, you will be familiar with the power factor definition, concept of leading, lagging and unity power factor and approaches to correct the power factors (Power Factor Correction (PFC))

Upon completion of the reactive power compensation and voltage control, you will have a sufficient knowledge to understand the main components of reactive power in transmission lines, power transfer levels in transmission lines, voltage regulation, the concept of voltage stability and power transfer limits. Furthermore, you will learn the main approaches to control the voltage in the power system and major concerns regarding the voltage collapse. By taking this course, you will master the compensation theory, and different approaches in compensating the reactive power in transmission lines or loads. The audience will also learn about:

  • Power transfer limits in transmission lines
  • Shunt compensation
  • Series compensation
  • Shunt reactors/capacitors
  • Synchronous condensers
  • Static VAR compensation
  • Static Voltage Controller (SVC)
  • Static Compensator (STATCOM)
  • Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC)
  • Thyristor Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC)
  • Series compensation
  • Sub-synchronous Resonance (SSR)
  • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)

Finally, the reactive power compensation and voltage control training course will introduce the concept of series compensation and discuss different compensation methods from passive elements to fast power electronic devices. Furthermore, the traditional compensation by series capacitors which will cause the sub-synchronous resonance (SSR) will be covered and solutions will be analyzed.
