However, problems arise on these devices through computer simulation, wind energy systems particularly on its conclusions can be made on which is the most performance on transmission of power or grid reliable FACTS device to use within the grid of abnormalities such as voltage sags and rapid wind energy systems.
Recent studies have been frequency fluctuations [Ferns, ]. The impact conducted on FACTS devices on their of wind turbine performance on the dynamic synchronization capability on wind energy behavior of the electricity system to which it is systems. The connection of FACTS based on connected [Heier, ] is an important factor to power converters are contributing to the be considered.
The use of Flexible AC integration of renewable energies improving Transmission System FACTS devices on their behavior under contingencies [Luna, ], power systems are known to mitigate the though these recent studies have been focusing problems concerning power transmission and on one type of a FACTS device.
The study is stability. A DFIG is a wound rotor induction machine with slip rings attached at the rotor fed by power converters. A DFIG can be controlled by a wide range of rotational speeds through sub- and supersynchronous speed operation [W. Sadara ]. Double Fed Induction Generator, a generating principle widely used in wind turbines. It is based on an induction generator with a multiphase wound rotor and a multiphase slip ring assembly with brushes for access to the rotor windings.
Figure 2. DFIG Configuration on Wind Turbine The principle of the DFIG is that rotor roto windings are connected to the grid via slip rings Wind Turbine and back-to-back back voltage source converter that controls both the rotor and the grid currents.
A wind turbine is a device that converts Thus rotor frequency can freely differ from the kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical grid frequency 50 or 60 Hz. By using the energy. If the mechanical energy is used to converter to controll the rotor currents, it is produce electricity, the device may be called a possible to adjust the active and reactive power wind generator or wind charger. If the fed to the grid from the stator independently of mechanical energy is used to drive machinery, the generator's turning speed.
The control such as for grinding grain or pump pumping water, the principle used is either the two-axis two current device is called a windmill or wind pump. The vector control or direct torque control. DTC has specifications of the several wind turbines along turned out to have better stability than current the grid are vital on observing the effects of the vector control especially when high reactive FACTS devices when implemented to improve currents are required from the generator.
The its performance. This means ans that the rotor voltages will be higher and currents respectively lower. The drawback is that controlled operation outside the operational speed range is impossible because of the higher than rated rotor voltage. Further, the voltage transients due to the grid disturbances three- and two-phase phase voltage dips, especially will also be magnified.
In order to prevent high rotor voltages - and high currents resulting from these voltages - from destroying the IGBTs and diodes of the converter, a protection circuit called crowbar is used. In most cases the DC voltage support for Gitizadeh, ].
Developed Connection of STATCOM is in parallel with the by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix grid bus and the manner of connection on the manipulations, plotting of functions and data, phasor model available on the software will be implementation of algorithms, creation of user used as an indication.
An additional package, Simulink, adds graphical multi-domain simulation and Model-Based Design for dynamic and embedded systems. These solutions are such as using phasor measurement unit, wide-area measurement signals, and flexible AC transmission system.
In these solutions, one of the powerful methods for enhancing the transient stability is to use flexible AC transmission system FACTS devices [5—8]. In many research papers [2, 9—11], the different types of these devices with different control techniques are used for improving transient stability.
In between these FACTS devices, the STATCOM is valuable for enhancement power system dynamic stability and frequency stabilization due to the more rapid output response, lower harmonics, superior control stability and small size. Abido, presented a review on the research and developments in the power system stability enhancement using FACTS controllers. They thoroughly discussed about how FACTS devices were installed in the system to overcome the related issues which may arise during installation.
Rahul Somalwar, et al. They also described about the coordination problem that likely to be occur among different control schemes. They investigate the system under fault conditions by using equal area criterion method. Transient stability control plays a significant role in ensuring the stable operation of power systems in the event of large disturbances and faults.
FACTS controllers are used for the dynamic control of voltage, impedance and phase angle of high voltage AC transmission lines. The basic principles of the following FACTS controllers, which are used in the two-area power system under study, are discussed briefly. The primary task of an SVC is to maintain the voltage at a particular bus by means of reactive power compensation.
The SVC uses conventional thyristors to achieve fast control of shunt-connected capacitors and reactors. The configuration of the SVC is shown in Fig. Which basically consists of a fixed capacitor C and a thyristor controlled reactor L.
The firing angle control of the thyristor banks determines the equivalent shunt admittance presented to the power system. Total susceptance of SVC can be controlled by controlling the firing angle of thyristors. However, the SVC acts like fixed capacitor or fixed inductor at the maximum and minimum limits.
Static Synchronous Compensator STATCOM In the transmission systems, STATCOM provides voltage support to buses by modulating bus voltages during dynamic disturbances in order to provide better transient characteristics, improve the transient stability margins and to damp out the system oscillations due to these disturbances.
The STATCOM is based on the solid state synchronous voltage source which generates a balanced set of three sinusoidal voltages at the fundamental frequency with rapidly controllable amplitude and phase angle.
Basically it consists of a voltage source converter VSC , a coupling transformer and a dc capacitor.

Basically it consists of a voltage source converter VSC , a coupling transformer and a dc capacitor.
Control of reactive current and hence the susceptance presented to power system is possible by variation of the magnitude of output voltage with respect to bus voltage and thus operating the STATCOM in inductive region or capacitive region. The TCSC consists of three main components: One of the two converters is connected in series with the transmission line through a series transformer and the other in parallel with the line through a shunt transformer.
The dc side of the two converters is connected through a common capacitor, which provides dc voltage for the converter operation.
The power balance between the series and shunt converters is a prerequisite to maintain a constant voltage across the dc capacitor. As the series branch of the UPFC injects a voltage of variable magnitude and phase angle, it can exchange real power with the transmission line and thus improves the power flow capability of the line as well as its transient stability limit.
Fig 4 UPFC connected to a transmission line fig. It has a voltage source converter serially connected to a transmission line through a transformer. It can be considered as asynchronous voltage source as it can inject an almost sinusoidal voltage of variable and controllable amplitude and phase angle, in series with a transmission line.
The injected voltage is almost in quadrature with the line current. A small part of the injected voltage that is in phase with the line current provides the losses in inverter. Most of the injected voltage, which is in quadrature with the line current, provides the effect of inserting an inductive or capacitive reactance in series with the transmission line.
The variable reactance influences the electric power flow in the transmission line. The direction of real power flow is from Area-1 to Area Table 1: Performance of TCSC is best for transient stability improvement but voltage profile is poor.
