Tutorial: Stabilizing the Future Transmission Grid Using Dynamic Var Technologies

April 18, 2022
This tutorial presents planning and specifying approaches, technology principles with example installations, a comparative evaluation of performance and an analysis of future trends expected to influence the technology development.

Due to changing utility infrastructure with regards to conventional generation retirement and increased levels of renewables, dynamic shunt compensation solutions (i.e. SVC, STATCOM, synchronous condensers) are becoming even more vital for transmission system operation and reliability. Historically, AC transmission shunt compensation is primarily used to maximize transmission capacity. Nowadays, system stability is a primary concern during major disturbances. As utility requirements become more complex, the optimal solution may be a combination of the available and future technology.

This tutorial at the 2022 IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution Conference presents planning and specifying approaches, technology principles with example installations, a comparative evaluation of performance and an analysis of future trends expected to influence the technology development and its place in the market. The technology includes mechanically switched shunts, synchronous condensers, static var compensators (SVC), static synchronous compensators (STATCOM) and hybrid STATCOMs.
