Description : Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM)

Answer : Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM)  STATCOM stands for Static Synchronous Compensator or Condenser. It may be a source of reactive power or sink of reactive AC power. It can ... and Controllers etc. STATCOM have symmetric lead-lag capability. STATCOM have no moving part.

Description : Improvement of transient stability using SVC

Answer : Improvement of transient stability using SVC The static VAR compensator (SVC) is a shunt connected FACTS device. SVC have two modes one is inductive ... ;transmittable power. Transient stability improvement can be estimated using equal area criterion.

Description : What is static var compensator ?

Answer : Static VAR Compensator (SVC)  SVC are use for regulating transmission voltage and for improving power quality of industrial load. SVC is made from one or more banks ... system. Static VAR Compensator is more reliable than dynamic compensation scheme like synchronous condenser.

Description : I'm Msc student in electrical engineering  and my project in control of the UPFC can you help me ?

Answer : UPFC means unified power flow controller. The control on UPFC is based on vector control approch proposed by Schauder & Mehta for Advanced static VAR compensators in 1991

Description : A homo-polar HVDC link consists of (A) single-conductor with positive polarity (B) two conductors with one positive and another negative polarity (C ) two conductors having the same polarity with a ground return (D) single conductor with negative polarity and ground as positive polarity 

Answer : two or more conductore having same  polarity,usually nagative . and ground return  ex: 1st conductore drain Id1 and 2nd  drain Id2 than the return will be (Id1+Id2)
